Editor's note: Adrien Leavitt is excellent photographer shooting all things positive on Seattle's queer scene. This is the first installment of a new weekly photo column called Queerview Mirror.

For the last several months, I've been working on a queer zine project called "#1 must have" We're really interested in telling stories and illustrating narratives; the project represents community/ies, support, self-expression, and love—all must haves for us. Each photoset is representative of time we spent with people, and I'm excited to continue this journey in The Stranger documenting queers around town. I'm also excited to let the pictures do the talking... —Adrien
