Poster: Queer Means Dangerous
This poster was created as a token of love and in solidarity with all those who resist. From Luke O'Donovan to the Trans-Liberation marchers Atlanta has many reasons to be proud.
Keep fighting and never ever stop! <3
Text from the poster comes from toward the queerest insurrection
" QUEER MEANS DANGEROUS
Some will read “queer” as synonymous with “gay and lesbian” or “LGBT”. This reading falls short. While those who would fit within the constructions of “L”, “G”, “B” or “T” could fall within the discursive limits of queer, queer is not a stable area to inhabit. Queer is not merely another identity that can be tacked onto a list of neat social categories, nor the quantitative sum of our identities. Rather, it is the qualitative position of opposition to presentations of stability - an identity that problematizes the manageable limits of identity. Queer is a territory of tension, defined against the dominant narrative of white-hetero-monogamous-patriarchy, but also by an affinity with all who are marginalized, otherized and oppressed. Queer is the abnormal, the strange, the dangerous. Queer involves our sexuality and our gender, but so much more. It is our desire and fantasies and more still. Queer is the cohesion of everything in conflict with the heterosexual capitalist world. Queer is a total rejection of the regime of the Normal."
Feel free to print and post these in areas with high foot traffic on basically any smooth surface. The more the merrier. Remember: propaganda is a way we can interact with places, not just people. Let’s redecorate every empty pole, clean metal box, storefront window and bulletin board.
