Proud Women is a coffee table style book that features more than 100 fierce, brave women in the LGBTQ+ community and their stories. Our goal was to give a group of diverse women a platform to share their story and inspire others to have the courage to be uniquely themselves.

Each woman featured in the book was asked a series of questions about their life as a woman in the LGBTQ+ community. They vulnerably shared their perspective in a way that sheds light on the challenges and courage it takes to overcome the obstacles they've faced.

Our hope is that readers will connect with at least one of the women in this book. Whether it’s allowing their story to resonate with them on a personal level or finding inspiration through their Instagram account (found on each page), the goal is for our audience to have a positive, empowering experience.

Every story is paired with a unique illustration by Milka Sukno and Nancy Chalmers. The art in the book is bright, bold, and colorful-- creating a piece of art for your coffee table!
