“The A.O. Movement Collective bring[s] a raw, vulnerable quality to their movement that’s highly arresting” —The New York Times
“Sarah A.O. Rosner and her A.O. Movement Collective communicate a profound hopelessness but also a tenderness—and queerness—that embodies the new American generation.” —Gay City News
