What is it about?

This article explores how queerness is rendered intelligible through the medium of autotheory. This particular medium allows queer writers to construct a liminal, inherently shifting space that allows for the onto-epistemological representation of queer lives -- even when these lives are subject to various conditions of invisibility, disappearance and spectrality.

I crafted this article as a queer writer who is seeking to better understand -- perhaps even make palpable -- the intersection between queerness and the subversive form of art that is autotheory.
