A coloring and activity book for adults, Color Me Queer is both a look at LGBTQIA+ history and a tongue-in-cheek love letter to the queer community.
Filled with art by award-winning illustrator Anshika Khullar, the pages of this book capture historic moments as well as the dailiness of modern queer life.
Color in a timeline of LGBTQIA+ history to learn about early activists, underground gay culture, and queer icons like Lorraine Hansberry, Sylvia Rivera, and Harvey Milk. Complete a fill-in-the-blank dating profile, cut out and dress up two queer cuties in paper doll form, match prominent LGBTQIA+ authors to their seminal works of literature, decorate a gay wedding cake, color and tear out your own protest signs, and celebrate queer community, art, music, and humor with every inch of this book!
