Foglifter goes full beast for Beast Crawl. As queer people repeatedly affirm our humanity, those who wish to oppress us declare our beastliness, claim that we are freaks, bathroom creeps, perverts or monsters. Bigoted rhetoric against the trans community particularly frames the most vulnerable among us as the most threatening. To this we say: we’ll show you monstrous. Queerness is fearsome, magical, chimeric, and precious. Like cryptids we are stunning and misunderstood, and we stand our ground. We're tired of your judgments.
Curator: Foglifter Press
Foglifter is a queer journal and press, but more than that. We publish powerful writing, intersectional writing, that queers our perspectives; writing that explores the sometimes abject, sometimes shameful, but always honest and revelatory experience.
