FINDING HOME Stories: MOLI STEINERT Photographs: KAREN ANDE Foreword: PHYLLIS LYON
by Moli Steinert & Karen Ande
"Finding Home", a collaboration between writer Moli Steinert and photographer Karen Ande, is a tribute to the resiliency to LGBT seniors and their fight for equality.
The featured seniors migrated to San Francisco in the 1950s and 1960s to find a place where they could live openly and find community.
It wasn't always easy, and it wasn't always safe, but here are their stories. Many thanks to Phyllis Lyon for writing the foreword.
A portion of the proceeds will be given to "openhouse", a nonprofit established to make sure that home for LGBT seniors would be a place of safety, caring and community.
Karen Ande is best known for her photographic images of orphans and vulnerable children in sub-Saharan Africa. Hope Publishing House released her book, Face to Face: Children of the AIDS Crisis in Africa, in 2010. In this new book, Karen turns her camera on an issue closer her home of San Francisco. Firmly believing in the power of the image and a good story, she collaborated with Moli Steinert to produce Finding Home, a tribute to courage of LGBT in their search for home and community.
