Standing on the Shoulders of Stonewall

2019 is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, and a lot of folks are reflecting on what that does (and doesn’t) mean. My contribution to that conversation is a comic that recently came out in a special issue of QED alongside many brilliant scholars. I spent a lot of time imagining what queer and trans* liberation could really look likeโ€”beyond legal equality, beyond anything including marriage, beyond acceptance. Read the full piece here!

I’m hand-making little books of the comic for the City-Wide Open Studios / New Haven Night Market Pop Up on October 4. I love playing with size and form, and I love publishing work in scholarly journals that isn’t just for scholars.
