  • "Black Women Deserve Great Sex": The Queer Generosity of KIMBRITIVE

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: KIMBRITIVE is a social startup dedicated to sexual wellness for Black women and girls. Founded in 2014 by Brittany Brathwaite and Kimberly Huggins, who hold graduate degrees in social work, public health, and human sexuality education, KIMBRITIVE aims to bring Black women and girls to the center of genuine conversations about bodies, sexual health, reproductive justice, and pleasure. Brathwaite and Huggins are committed to providing information that is medically accurate, sex-positive, LGBTQIA inclusive, developmentally appropriate, empowering, and unapologetic. Their work is explicitly propelled by womanism, feminism, antiracism, social justice movements, and intersectional analyses of power and privilege, and ... Read More

  • Bisexual Activism: A Love Story

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Like many activists, I am passionate about human rights. Activists are among the most passionate people I know; we are enamored of justice, and with yearning we are driven to achieve it. In this autoethnography, I reframe the stereotype of bisexual excess and consider it in terms of bi+ generosity. To my mind, it is love as affect that motivates generosity, which leads to love as care in action. I argue that my bi+ activism is enacted through acts of care, which bell hooks would categorize as an ethic of love. By discussing the place of love in bi+ activism, my goal is to contribute to the fields of autoethnography, love studies, and bisexual studies.My interest in love has changed over time, shifting in focus from ...

  • The Warm Glow of a Pixelated Campfire: Queer Generosity and Community
           Building in the Worlds of Anna Anthropy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When a player first opens Queers in Love at the End of the World, a short interactive story written by Anna Anthropy, they are greeted with one simple word: "Begin."1On its own, this initiating phrase is not particularly noteworthy. Since the heyday of the amusement arcade, video games have consistently incorporated language like "Press Start" or "Insert Coin" into their title screens, simple instructions informing players how to actually take command of their spaceship, their race car, their brawler, their knight—and moreover, actually encouraging them to do so by way of a rhetoric of performativity, with each "Hit Enter" serving as what J. L. Austin would call an illocutionary utterance.2 Indeed, this style of ... Read More

  • Gestures of Ambiguity: A Queer Filipinx-American Choreographic Strategy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: There is intentional vagueness in Filipinx-American culture—and not just in the form of tsismis.1 There is also strategic malicious vagueness in Filipinx politics past and present, especially in their documentation, but in this article, I focus on familial ambiguity. For example, in the program notes for my dance work hallow hollow, I detail my mother's tendency to be vague in her shared recipes. "When I asked my mom for a halo-halo recipe to serve before the show tonight, she gave me a list of ingredients. I asked if she knew the best brands to buy. She said, 'No, not really. Any brand is good.' It took until gathering the vague recipe instructions to realize why my mom keeps things incomplete. She leaves room."2 ... Read More

  • Through the Kink-Scene Curtain: Sculptural Experience as Generous
           Uncertainty and Queer Logics of Exchange

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: By the early 1980s, the NYC Meatpacking district had grown into the epicenter of the queer club and kink scene. Derelict distribution centers found new purpose as night clubs, gay bars, and BDSM dungeons. In dark, back rooms, patrons revised traditional definitions of love and pleasure as they enacted the radical potential of queer community. By 1985, though, the HIV/AIDS crisis and the antigay political rhetoric that attended it threatened these sites of communion as much as they underscored their significance. During the time when activists like Larry Kramer, Michael Callen, and Cleve Jones employed a range of methods for calling widespread public attention to the crisis and its devastating toll, queer clubs and ...

  • Care Work, Queercrip Labor Politics, and Queer Generosities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Disabled people are considered an inconvenience, an afterthought. And if we aren't thought of from the very beginning, you can bet the result will be one which excludes us.Queer spaces have a persistent ableism problem.As the authors of this issue of QED expand on frameworks of queer generosities, I ask that we tend to that ableism. Queer generosities, as Isaac West suggests, "want something more from our work to help us create the worlds we want to live in as opposed to reinscribing at every turn the dominant order of things."2 Queer generosities, then, take up the labor of world building, and I'm not interested in any worldbuilding that, to echo Ghauri's experiences, only takes up disability as an afterthought. I ... Read More

      Abstract: Dear Dr. VanHaitsma,Thank you (and the University of South Carolina Press) for the delivery of your missive. I hope you will forgive, tolerate, or perhaps even enjoy the genre-blurring of this review. I thought, given the subject of your book, Queering Romantic Engagement in the Postal Age: A Rhetorical Education, that an epistolary approach that queers (I hope!) genre conventions of book reviews might be most (in)appropriate—just as you discuss how writers like Addie Brown, Rebecca Primus, and Albert Dodd queered literacy education for epistolary address in letters to their romantic counterparts and in commonplace books and diaries. Of course, this letter is not private (or even romantic, though it is perhaps ... Read More

Remember that these are not your stories. Remember that these are your stories. Both/and. Neither/nor. Remember.This quote speaks of everything E. Patrick Johnson's book is based on. The narrator chosen as the keeper of these women's stories. For so many Black women, including myself, we feel our voices are often muted, silenced, and dismissed as not having anything of value to contribute. Add to this a layer of queerness, and our voices are most of the time nonexistent. Not because they do not exist, but because homophobia is prevalent in the Black community, our ... Read More

      Abstract: The racial politics of carceral punishment is steeped in antiblackness, which ensures that Black students are exceedingly surveilled and penalized for student misconduct. As institutional racism persists across academic spaces in the United States, Savannah Shange's Progressive Dystopia: Abolition, Antiblackness, + Schooling in San Francisco offers a critical Black anthropological intervention into an ongoing conversation about racialized school discipline that disproportionately affects students of color, with Black girls experiencing high rates of suspensions, detentions, and expulsions. At the intersection of race, gender, class, and displacement, liberal progressivism in San Francisco is upended through broad ... Read More

  • Trans Exploits: Trans of Color Cultures & Technologies in Movement
           by Jian Neo Chen (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The mainstream visibility of trans and gender-nonconforming people has risen notably in the United States. Trans individuals have reached mass media stardom, transgender rights have become a part of public political discourse, and transgender studies have become a prominent academic discipline. The growing societal presence of trans people is used by those who consider themselves progressive to represent social progress and embodied trans experiences are used for academic critique of the gender/sex binary. A critical lens reveals that the "progress" of trans visibility is often limiting, oversimplified, and lacking in discourse of intersecting marginalized identities and experiences. Instead of being liberating for ... Read More

      Abstract: John Wei examines the fluidity of queer Chinese cultures and social practices in today's ongoing social transformation in his new book, Queer Chinese Cultures and Mobilities: Kinship, Migration, and Middle Classes. Wei explores the complexity of historical, political, cultural, economic, legislative, and technological forces that have greatly influenced the lived experiences, social practices, and cultural expressions of queer people and communities along with the development and transformations of Chinese societies. Wei critiques compulsory familism and heteronormativity, as well as the imperative development and neoliberal rationales that have been stretching people's hope for a queer future in Chinese societies. ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As the field of Black studies nurtures (re)new(ed) inquisitive energies around questions of ecology, animality, and the limits of "the Human," Zakiyyah Iman Jackson's Becoming Human: Matter and Meaning in an Antiblack World does remarkable work guiding readers into and powerfully extending and deepening these conversations. Building on Black feminist and queer thought as well as animal studies, philosophy of race, history of science, and biopolitical theory, Jackson intervenes in posthumanist discourse to refigure the forces of race, gender, and sex(uality) as central conditions of possibility for the figure of the Human. Jackson builds on Saidiya Hartman's earlier demonstration that inclusion and recognition can ... Read More

           by Ghassan Moussawi (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "Patriarchy saved her" (99), jokes Randa, a genderqueer Beiruti and one of the interlocuters informing Ghassan Moussawi's Disruptive Situations: Fractal Orientalism and Queer Strategies in Beirut. Randa's mother told her that if Randa was a man, she would have been disowned and kicked out of the house for her same-sex desires. Randa's sarcastic humor is one of the queer strategies highlighted by Moussawi, and it is an example of the ways that the Beirutis he interviewed refuse to reconcile contradictory aspects of their intersectional identities in the context of al-wad' (the situation). Al-wad' is a commonly used term in Beirut that captures the "complexity of everyday violence, disruptions, and lack of basic ... Read More

      Abstract: Before setting out to critique a text, I always begin by deciding on my evaluation criteria. When the text is about trans people, and it is created by a cis person, Jacob Hale's "Suggested Rules for Non-Transsexuals Writing about Transsexuals, Transsexuality, Transsexualism, or Trans _____"1 usually serves as the foundation for my critique. After watching Matt Kliegman's Markie in Milwaukee, however, I am left with only one criterion, a criterion that I suggest we add to Hale's important list: Does this text portend harm to trans people'Markie in Milwaukee documents its subject, Markie Wenzel, for ten years from her time as Mark, a seven-foot-tall evangelical Baptist minister in Milwaukee, through her transition to ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We are living in a moment characterized by a profound lack of generosity. The attacks on the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, 2021. The ascendency of global fascism. The hoarding of life-saving vaccines by powerful nation states. The continued exploitation of land, air, and water despite a well-documented and near irreversible global climate crisis. We could go on, listing the kinds of cruelty that extend beyond any individual lived experiences and yet feel so specific to them.It is within our current context of overwhelming cruelty that we turn our attention to the radical potential of generosity. To be clear, we are not talking about charitable giving. Such giving throws resources at a problem in hopes that ... Read More

Fauci is still at the NIH and still urging patience, and I'm shouting at Wolf Blitzer: "This isn't the first pandemic in our lifetimes, Wolf!" Some of us have lived through pandemics before. Until we didn't. To write about the generosity of queer forebearers during another plague can be maddening.In 2020's COVID spring, up go the tally boards. On March 7, CNN makes the dire report that, "US coronavirus cases now at 437."1 ABC mournfully announces in May, "US reaches 100,000 coronavirus deaths."2 Signs shaped like hearts, reading "We love our healthcare workers," are tacked to every tree in the neighborhood.

  • On The Argonauts, Testo Junkie, and Generating Autotheory by Changing
           Gender

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: An annoying thing about gender is that it always gets in the way of people understanding context.Somewhere, a young queer is reading Maggie Nelson and weeping; she is playing with the margins of her work-in-progress to see if she can cite Anne Carson in the effortlessly emergent way Nelson does in The Argonauts. In Brooklyn, there are stories of trans bois reading Paul Preciado's Testo Junkie, congregating at parties to discuss how the rush of their own injections measures up against his; they are starting their own journals, giddy with the possibility of turning their lives into theory. A contemporary boom in autotheory—the term, its writing, its excitement—perhaps owes these two writers more than any other. This ... Read More

  • Minoritarian Affects: Feeling Generosity as a Life Ethic in a Graveyard

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On September 9, 2017, Mona Ahmed, eighty-one, breathed her last. One of India's most renowned hijras,1 she shot to fame when photographer Dayanita Singh made a photobook about her in 2001, titled Myself Mona Ahmed, with images by Singh and text by Mona.2 The book went out of circulation in a few years. However, I had a copy of Singh's book that I found in a bookshop that houses books that have gone out of print. Ever since I wished to explore how questions of death circulate in queer and transgender communities in India for my PhD research, I longed to meet Mona. After all, she lived in a graveyard in the last two decades of her life. Mona painstakingly built a home in this graveyard and along with a home, she ... Read More

  • Abolitionist Generosities: On Hunger Striking as Queer Refusal

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Queer refusal takes many forms. In 2007, Victoria Arellano, a twenty-three-year-old undocumented trans woman, died in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody from multiple AIDS-related infections. Arellano was detained for two months; throughout that time, she was repeatedly denied access to necessary medical treatment. Instead of being given HIV medications, guards gave her only Tylenol and water. For those two months, other detainees in her cell block cared for her. They applied compresses to her forehead to reduce her fever. They helped her go to the bathroom and even cleaned up her bodily fluids when she couldn't care for herself. Arellano might not have ever even made it to the hospital if it weren't ... Read More

  • Generously Rude: A Conversation with Myriam Gurba

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the following interview, guest editors Jonathan Alexander and Timothy Oleksiak sat down with writer Myriam Gurba to talk about queer generosity. For us, Gurba was an obvious choice to interview. Her powerful memoir, Mean, published in 2017, reads like the queerest of gifts. On one hand, Gurba generously offers us a stark recounting of her own (and others') sexual abuse and trauma in a racist, misogynistic culture, telling deeply personal stories so we might better understand the dynamics of sexual predation in our culture. On the other hand, Mean, as Gurba describes below, makes demands on its readers, refusing them any simple accounting of the damages done to her while also challenging readers to contend with ...

      Abstract: Dear Sam,It's mid-morning on another mid-pandemic Saturday. I can hear the wind as it rustles the verdant, newly mostly unfurled leaves on the large maples in front of our house. My mood is lighter than it has been in months likely because we are almost to the end of what has been a very, very long semester. I know you were also teaching remotely, and I hope you and your students have made it through ok. What. A. Year.Last time we spoke I think I told you that I was planning to write a piece about you for a special issue of QED: A Journal in LGBTQ Worldmaking, one that proposes to explore the possibility and potential of queer generosity as particularly relevant to queer worldmaking.1 Queer generosity, as editors ...

  • Sequins and Survival: Queer Bodily Generosity during COVID-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: During the COVID-19 pandemic, bodies and health have obviously been at the forefront of public consciousness, but this is not a time of bodily generosity. People whose bodies are already policed and discriminated against are even more vulnerable to COVID and its long-term effects. Moreover, much public messaging about COVID assigns shame to people in bodies deemed more "at risk" of serious illness due to the pandemic, which is especially overt in the case of fatphobia.1 Writer Aubrey Gordon details: "As COVID-19 cases surge once again, like many others, I find myself worrying about what will happen to me or the people I love should we contract the coronavirus. And as a fat person, I wonder, too, about the quality ... Read More
