We're Here, We're Queer, a new book by Chicago writer Owen Keehnen, contains more than 100 interviews (primarily conducted in the 1990s) with activists, artists, writers and others who helped lay the groundwork for the current LGBTQ world.

Among the interviewees are Quentin Crisp, Edmund White, Dorothy Allison, E. Lynn Harris, Chuck Renslow, Camille Paglia, Alison Bechdel, Joan Jett Blakk, Michael Cunningham and Sapphire.

Keehnen's work has been featured in hundreds of periodicals and anthologies worldwide. He is the co-author, with Tracy Baim, of Leatherman: The Legend of Chuck Renslow and co-edited Nothing Personal: Chronicles of Chicago's LGBTQ Community 1977-1997. Keehnen also is a contributor to Windy City Times.
