Alchemical Postmodern Theorist: explore no-identity politics, radical culture & queer liberation
Issue two of my zine, APMT, is about family. APMT 1.2: "this is what we call family" explores family in all of its brilliant permutations. Is family defined by one man, and one women, and kids? By two married people of any gender? I am seeking to move beyond the gay marriage debate, and into the territory of chosen, post-nuclear, extended and queer families that break boundaries and practice radical new forms of support and encouragement. At the root of the revolution are groups of people who depend on each other, who are imagining and re-imagining 'family' all the time. I would love to have you be a part of this zine. Share your experiences with family: contribute a story, photograph, artwork, poem or article.
Stories, artwork and photography related to more traditional families (about having a child, marrying, or about parents, siblings, and grandparents) are more than acceptable, but these stories will be only part of the zine. Whatever your usual or unusual family structure, I would like to hear about it.
Deadline for submission is December 30, 2009. I'll accept pieces up until Jan 7 if you let me know beforehand.
