For this big book I interviewd twenty one young people (between 15 and 23 years old). They frankly talked about that what glows in their lives: love, anger ambition. Being extremely diverse, they all have one thing in common: their sexuality or their gender differs from the majority. To every interview I wrote a poem, and Floor de Goede drew a portrait of each interviewee, At the end of the book there;s a chapter that tells what happend after the interviews. The beautiful book design is by Roald Triebels.
This book also marks the start of a whole new series with queer characters: Querido's imprint Querido Glow.
