Suggestions of a Life Being Lived is a bold presentation of contemporary work that looks at queerness as a set of political alliances and possibilities. Untethered to institutions of sexual or gender normativity and in pursuit of greater freedoms, the work in this book represents queer activism, intentional and imagined communities, self-determinism, and DIY alternative world-making. Less concerned with categorical sexual identities or coming-out narratives, this book presents work that looks outward towards collective and resistant expressions of queer community existing outside of dominant gay and lesbian culture. This catalogue was produced in conjunction with the SF Camerawork exhibition of the same title (September 9 - October 23, 2010). Featuring work by: Steven Miller; Tara Mateik; Killer Banshee; Gay Shame; Kirstyn Russell; Jeannie Simms; Lenn Keller; Mercury Vapor Studios; Chris Vargas; Greg Youmans; Jason Fritz Michael; Aay Preson-Myint; Allyson Mitchell; Eric Stanley; Torsten Zenas Burns; and Darrin Martin.
