G.B. JONES is an artist, filmmaker, and musician with a bone to pick. In the early 80s Jones co-founded the post-punk proto-riot grrrl band Fifth Column and in 1985 started publishing the queer punk zine J.D.s with co-conspirator Bruce LaBruce out of their rundown apartment in downtown Toronto. The zine’s inaugural issue featured the debut of her legendary Tom Girls series. Her drawings continue to be exhibited worldwide. Jones’ “no-budget” films often depict the hijinks of bad-mannered girl gangs, homo hustlers, and anarchist mischief-makers. This font is based on the title sequence of her 2008 film The Lollipop Generation. Jones’ matter-of-fact ...

This conversation focuses on the research Olivia Ahn has been conducting these last two years in the relationship design and bodies develop with each other in the architectural typology of the suburban house. We examine together the historical and political logic that created the American suburbia after the second world war. One of these logics consists in the (re)invention of the female gender to whom the suburban house was destined. Olivia describes how the plan of the suburban house, including its compartmentalization into specific rooms, has allowed codified behaviors to enact themselves. We talk about how the control and production of a heteronormative sexuality takes part into this ...

MARTIN WONG (American, 1946-1999) painted the world in bricks, sweat, and sign language. He moved to New York City in 1978 and his work often depicted the urban blight of that time while being singularly saturated with deeply humanist joy. Wong was an “outsider among outsiders”: as a gay Chino-Latino painter, he sidestepped the detached conceptualism of many of his contemporaries in favor of social realist tributes to the gritty ecstasy of city life, homoerotics of prison and firemen, the voyeuristic nature of language, and queer black and brown love. Wong died from AIDS-related causes while in the care of ...

In this conversation filmmaker Frédéric Tcheng and I reflect on what characterizes queer cinema. Despite the (fortunate) impossibility to attribute a systematic label on a film as “queer,” we attempt to dissociate films that integrate homosexual or transsexual narrative components within itself but yet remain within a relatively conventional structure, and thus contribute to a problematic yet interesting normalization of the LGBT community, from films that substantially transgress genre/gender through their very narrative structure. Such questions about normative processes and their subversion leads us beyond cinema to the domain of the social bodies. Frédéric Tcheng is a French-born filmmaker. He co-produced, ...

This podcast consists in an introduction to the book of Karen Tongson’s book Relocations: Queer Suburban Imaginaries (2011) that primarily situates its research in Orange County and the Inland Empire, both in Southern California. Demystifying the outsider imaginary of a white heteronormative suburbia, Karen makes for us a (non-exhaustive) inventory of the events and objects that populate these queer imaginaries. From the houses front yards to the mini-malls and from the the Studio K to the performances of JJ Chinois and British pop muisc, she recounts the navigation of queers bodies both in the space of suburbia and in the televisual/musical broadcasted environment. Karen ...

Robert Ford published THING from 1989 through 1993, a zine that he described as a “black gay and lesbian underground arts journal and magazine kind of thing.” The Chicago-based publication foregrounded queer black and brown DJs, drag queens, artists, poets, and filmmakers. THING proudly proclaimed on its masthead “She Knows Who She Is.” In 1994, Ford died from complications related to AIDS. This typeface is dedicated to his memory. The letterforms replicate various text treatments used by Ford and his collaborators across several issues. Robert Ford (font) was commissioned by Earth Angel, a Milwaukee-based club night, in June of 2018. This Font ...

This conversation with Mehammed Amadeus Mack is centered on his book Sexagon: Muslims, France, and the Sexualization of National Culture (Fordham University Press, 2017). In it, we discuss two types of injunctions. The first one is addressed to queer Arabs and Banlieusards; it is produced by homonormativity that imagines limited modes of being queer centered around the act of coming out and the centralized urban territoriality it ensues, in opposition of clandestine and peripheral praxis of homosexuality. The second injunction we discuss is a (homo)nationalist European one that consider Muslim queers to be in necessary conflict with their communities while setting the ...
