The Colour by Icons LGBT Historic Colouring Book & posters are a fun and retro-kitsch project that also serves as an educational tool. So much of queer history has been erased and is not something we are taught in school. Growing up, many of us did not have queer role models. In this cool, collectible art book and posters we celebrate some of queer history’s most colourful trailblazers: legends and heroic symbols of our struggles, talents and achievements. In Colour By Icons, it’s up to you to colour inside or outside the lines. 


Never Apart is a non-profit organization in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, determined to bring about social change and spiritual awareness through cultural programming with global reach and impact.

 

Never Apart seeks to educate on equality, the environment and conscious living, while celebrating both established and emerging artists. The platform is geared towards igniting positive change and unity through culture — gatherings, music, art exhibitions, panel discussions, workshops, special events and a monthly online magazine. 

 

the Colouring Book 

 

Colour by Icons, the Never Apart Historic LGBT colouring book is a project that aims to restore the importance of queer history and role models through a fun educational device, filling in some of the gaps of our past while colouring in and or outside the lines.

 

Includes a total of 50 iconic images, all found inside and bound in a 1980’s Colouring Book style!
