I am in serious need of some fantastic, cathartic, queer reads, but I’m having a terrible time looking for them on my own.
Let me be more specific: I really want in-your-face, aggressively transgressive radical genderfucking queer as fuck characters. Queer “burn-the-status-quo-down” rage and/or joyfully transgressive sex are a must, basically.
Some examples of what I am looking for:
Joey Comeau’s Lockpick Pornography is my long-standing favourite queer manifesto in fiction format. Or anything like any of Comeau’s writing in general, really. This is sort of the gold standard.
Miranda July’s The First Bad Man is fucking fascinating and way queer in the sense I am looking for.
Melinda Gebbie and Alan Moore’s Lost Girls isn’t hyper-queer, but the vignettes are varied enough that they hit a lot of the right notes.
Raziel Reid’s When Everything Feels Like the Movies has some moments approaching the type of raging queerness I’m looking for, but is also suffers from bi/pan erasure issues, so.
This poem. It is eating up my insides and I want more things like this.
Fiction and non-fiction are both great! Erotica is totally acceptable! I will also accept awesome movie recommendations, really!
