We often think of intimacy as a hegemonic narrative. Touch expands our understanding of intimacy by positioning members of the queer community as the protagonists of stories of love and closeness. The custom pairs of embroidered gloves are emblematic of a participant's personal experience of intimacy, as told to the artist in intimate conversations. The stories, lovingly woven into the weave of the garment, are as heartbreaking as they are uplifting. It is my hope that this community feels a little more seen, a little less alone. Being a queer person in the pursuit of love and happiness can sometimes seem impossible, but I know that our love and acceptance burns the brightest of them all.
