Reimagining Queer Community: a Perzine by Rachel, 2011

Cover from Hoax's Etsy Shop.

"[After reading And the Band Played On: Politics, People, and the AIDS Epidemic] Suddenly and for the first time, I found myself wishing that queer theory had never happened. I was angry about how all of the emphasis on post-modern, overly academic deconstructions of language and identity (i.e. a good chunk of queer theory) has often derailed social justice conversations away from talking about systemic changes and goals that we can be working towards together. Now don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of Foucault <3 and other queer theory philosophers..." quoted with permission
