Queer Objects

Queer Objects

“Queer lives give rise to a vast array of objects: the things we fill our houses with, the gifts we share with our friends, the commodities we consume at work and at play, the clothes and accessories we wear, various reminders of state power, as well as the analogue and digital technologies we use to communicate with one another. But what makes an object queer? The chapters in Queer Objects consider this question in relation to lesbian, gay and transgender communities across time, cultures and space.”

From monuments to buttons, a quilt, a waistcoat, a powder puff – sculpture, ephemera, and toys of many kinds…this adults-only deep dive is comprised of 63 essays, penned by a mix of established and emerging writers – forming an international compilation that is thoughtfully researched and absolutely captivating.

Queer Objects stretches its focus from the hyper-local and contemporary, to the global and historic.

Packed full of intriguing colour illustrations, and archival documents – including a sweet cartoon ode to our beloved Coco’s Cantina, right here in Tāmaki Makaurau.
