Atlanta-based photographer Kim Roseberry will profile 25 black lesbians and couples in her latest book, We Love As You Do (SHEdriven). Roseberry chose to focus on lesbians of color because of the stigma attached to them by the black community as a result of religious beliefs.

Diverse in terms of jobs and age, the book will feature professionals across fields from the ages of 20 to 46. “This book puts a real face and a real story behind lesbians,” Roseberry said. [EdgeAtlanta]
