Each photograph is accompanied by text edited from personal testimonies written by those featured, and from interviews conducted by the photographer and author Robin Hammond.
Singer, pianist and composer Elton John says “Robin’s images tell the story of struggle and survival, of resilience and empathy, of discrimination and the hard work and advocacy needed to overcome it. These images show us people who seek only to live honestly, openly, with dignity and without fear.”
