Queering Rural Spaces

Sarah Stellino's avatar Sarah Stellino

Being a queer woman and a photographer, the idea of photographing people in the LGBTQIA+ community had been slowly swirling around in my subconscious for years. I narrowed in even further for my series when I started to think about buying a home with my wife, and feeling nostalgic about living on a farm. When I lived on a farm previously, I wasn’t forward about my identity as a queer person, and I wasn’t sure I would feel safe and welcome in a rural environment. So I’ve started to interview and make portraits to highlight LGBTQIA+ folks who occupy rural spaces, not only for my own purposes, but also to challenge the assumption that queer people can only thrive in urban areas.
