Today begins another semester in the wonderful world of adjunct university teaching for me. I’ll be giving an interdisciplinary fine arts/arts and sciences research methods course through the lens of sexuality research. You can check out the course syllabus here if you’re curious.
Earlier this past spring my article on the changing sex work laws in Canada and the potential impact they might have on US northern border states like Maine was published in the Portland Phoenix. The Future of Sex Work is available online for your reading pleasure. Surprisingly I have received very little hate mail after its publication which I can only attribute to the fact that no one reads long form journalism—or the Phoenix—anymore.
On September 27th I will be doing a small talk and Q&A at the Baltimore Book Festival discussing the new Against Equality anthology, Queer Revolution, Not Mere Inclusion. There are no other firm touring dates this fall for Against Equality, but in February and March I will be touring across Australia and New Zealand spreading the anti-assimilationist, anti-capitalist queer gospel that is Against Equality. Dates for this down under tour will be posted sometime in the next few months on the AE events page.
I’m also working on a few forthcoming journal articles and book chapters including a historical overview and analysis of the MIXNYC experimental queer film festival, an editorial about why I’m not a #truvadawhore, and a co-authored Against Equality piece for the UK-based Decolonizing Sexualities Network’s forthcoming anthology. There are a couple short film projects in the works as well!
