    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.

    She had one question: What do you love about being queer?

    She filmed responses in her own living room to make the documentary:

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

    And now the project has become a book:
