Queers Feminists & Interiors

Buy this issue Subscribe

Queers, Feminists & Interiors presents a critique of the normative violence of gender in the specific context of indoor architectures. It engages a dialogue between trans perspectives on public bathrooms (Paul B. Preciado and Myka T. Johnson & Jamie Marsicano) or the capitalist workplace (João Gabriell), the demagogic blindspot of femonationalism when violence against women is deployed in domestic spaces (Sara Farris), the clandestine alternatives to white “gayborhoods” for queer Arabs in France (Mehammed Amadeus Mack), the impossibility for young Hong Kong lesbians or, to an even higher degree, female migrant domestic workers to access “a room of one’s own” (Sonia Wong and Tings Chak), the violence of the norm in the design of all rooms and furniture (Léopold Lambert), or the far-from-neutral space of the coming out (Paola Paredes). The non-topical part of the issue also presents articles on the demilitarization struggle in Hawai’i (Laurel Mei-Singh), the Moroccan political movement of the Hirak in the Rif (Soraya el Kahlaoui), and life as a Dane of color in stigmatized and gentrifying neighborhoods (Aysha Amin).
