Community is a word that gets used a lot these days. But what does it really mean? And how do you know if or when it’s missing? For this project, we’re traveling around the country to explore the relationship between community and space, examining that relationship through the lens of the bars, bookstores, art and political spaces where LGBTQ women gather, at a time when many such spaces are struggling to remain open.

ALL WE’VE GOT brings together a documentary film, a web-based application, a national tour of events, and published material to explore some of the ways LGBTQ women form community through the spaces where they gather. Why does physical space matter to any group, but particularly those who are not well-represented in the vast majority of other spaces?

Join us as we travel the country to find answers to these questions and more.

So I’m listing some of the best sources that I have come to know through my own research for ...
