What Do You Love About Being Queer?

It started with one simple question that gave rise to a tumblr, a film, and now a book.

1. Meet Vivek Shraya:

Vivek Shraya is a talented Toronto-based musician, writer and filmmaker (with fantastic facial hair). His collection of published short stories and other projects explores gender politics, queer theory, and religion.

2. He had one question: What do you love about being queer?

He filmed responses in his own living room to make the documentary:

The responses were compiled on his tumblr, you can add your own as well.

10. And now the project has become a book:
