Larsen’s work has been written about in publications such as Urban Milwaukee, Photo Emphasis, and Humble Arts Foundation. In 2021, their work was included in the publication Witness, curated by Efrem Zelony-Mindell, which has since been acquired by the MOMA Library of New York. They are the founder and curator of That Way, an online platform and printed zine started in 2018, highlighting the work of LGBTQ+ artists from around the globe. Most recently in July 2021, Larsen organized and co-curated Queering the Cream City, an exhibition taking place on 12 Milwaukee billboards replacing advertising with LGBTQ art for one month. They love butterflies, the color pink, and making new friends!
