Meet the Not Queer Capitol Hill Resident Behind the "Keep Cap Hill Queered" Mural - Slog - The Stranger
Straight people hanging out in gay bars—straight people coming into queer spaces de-queers them, don’t they? And straight people moving to Capitol Hill in large numbers has un-queered the neighborhood, hasn’t it?

Wow. That’s a big, big question. And I understand it’s a big question. There’s no succinct way for me to answer it. The one word answer to both those questions is, “Yes.” The two-word answer is, “It can.” A longer answer might go like, “There’s a way to be in a space without taking up that space or crowding others out of it. There’s a way to become a part of a community—I’ve learned this in social justice communities I’ve been a part of. They talk about when to step up and when to step back. I was never dancing on a pool table at the Elite with my shirt off. We would go with friends and watch a college basketball game upstairs and the bartenders were really nice. We were in that space without taking it up.

So by simply being chill, straight people can come into gay bars without de-gaying or de-queering them. Keep your shirt on, don’t start woo-wooing—hang back, be the unobtrusive straight person?

That’s what I’d like to be. I’d like to be that person. I strive to be that person. I understand a lot of the the privilege I hold, and I understand that there needs to be space people have without me there. I try to be conscious of that space as much as possible. I’m never going to be perfect, but I try to listen.

Billy Barr, the hermit of abandoned mining town Gothic | 9news.com
A collection of DVDs and chocolate bars gets Billy through the long, cold nights. His DVD library is growing, and Billy estimates he has somewhere between 1,800 and 1,900 DVDs. His taste in movies is more in line with a romantic than rugged mountain man. Most nights it’s a tossup between love stories, Bollywood flicks and Disney movies.

The Remarkable Tale of Christopher Knight - DirectExpose
For Knight, solitude wasn’t always so poetic. Sometimes even silence itself deafens. “Solitude bestows an increase in something valuable,” he mused. “I can’t dismiss that idea. Solitude increased my perception. But here’s the tricky thing: when I applied my increased perception to myself, I lost my identity. There was no audience, no one to perform for. There was no need to define myself. I became irrelevant.”

White as a Ghost World
Enid is guided by her whiteness here, too. Unable to relate to her father (who reunites with a woman who seemed to make Enid’s childhood a living hell, Maxine), and with the tenuousness of her friend bonds exposed, Enid is, like many white people, culturally aimless and without a tribe to call her own. She is Jewish, but we never hear her claim this identity and instead learn about it through the anti-Semitic jokes of a guy she trades VHS tapes with. Like many teenage girls, she is prone to stylistic phases (Rebecca refers to her “little old lady phase” at one point) and appropriates openly in search for an identity—when her green-haired punk look is derided she cries in exasperation, “It’s not like I’m some modern punk, dickhead. It’s obviously a 1977 original punk rock look!” The closest she gets to claiming a fixed culture happens when Rebecca derides the “creeps and losers and weirdos” she encounters at her job and Enid protests, “But those are our people!” Enid is privileged and selfish enough to regard identity as such a malleable construct.

How One Activist Used Opera and Drag to Change American Politics Forever | Atlas...
Empress José Sarria and Emperor Joshua Norton, of course, never actually wed—the timeline makes that impossible. Norton died in 1880. Sarria began making his pilgrimages almost a century later. The fake marriage was a kind of inside joke, part of Sarria’s flavor for the outlandish. A trailblazer himself, Sarria perhaps saw a kindred spirit in Norton’s brand of fearless outcast.

What the Dragon Said: A Love Story | Tor.com
When I look at the world
I see a table.
All those fancy houses, people with degrees, horses and whales,
bankers and Buddha statues
the Pope, astronauts, panda bears and yes, paladins
if you let me swallow you whole
IΓÇÖll call you whatever you want.
Look at it all: waitresses and ice caps and submarines down
at the bottom of the heavy lightless saltdark of the sea
DonΓÇÖt they know theyΓÇÖd be safer
inside me?
I could be big for them
I could hold them all
My belly could be a city
where everyone was so loved
they wouldnΓÇÖt need jobs. I could be
the hyperreal
post-scarcity dragonhearted singularity.
I could eat them
and feed them
and eat them
and feed them.

...you canΓÇÖt begin to think through
what it takes to fill up a body like this.
It takes everything pretty
and everything true
and you stick yourself in a cave because
your want is bigger than you.
