In so doing, the book presents a series of neither caricatures nor stereotypes but of individualsactive agents in the universal quest for happiness, intimacy, fulfillment, respect, and a sense of belonging. This is the human face of the ****** community in Australia, and these beautifully crafted and life-affirming photographs, in black-and-white and in color, show us the personal and psychological landscape of what it means to be part of a community that is as vibrant as it is diverse.
