“Intergenerational talk is so important, to remind people that where we’re at now is not where we’ve always been.” — Peter Waples-Crowe, Archer Magazine #10
Welcome to Archer Magazine issue #10: the HISTORY issue.
“History goes beyond the sounds and sights memorialised in media and archives. In fact, it’s just as much, if not more, about what we don’t see or hear or read about.” — Adolfo Aranjuez, editor-in-chief, Archer Magazine #10
“Being asked to find yourself within a categorising structure that has systematically erased you is fertile ground for both critique and re-traumatisation.” — Archie Barry, Archer Magazine #10
Celebrate the launch of Archer Magazine #10 in Sydney, in collaboration with Queerstories.
In August, Queerstories is teaming up with Archer Magazine to celebrate LGBTQIA writers in print. The world’s most inclusive magazine about sexuality, gender and identity, Archer Magazine has been publishing diverse voices for 5 years. Issue #10 will be launched at Giant Dwarf, with performers from Archer Magazine’s pool of contributors. Centred on the theme of history, Issue #10 includes work exploring Sex Work and Society, Trans Exclusion, Indigenous Queer Elders, Dominatrix Across Time, Butch Lineage, Perspectives on HIV, Muslim Futurism & much more.
Hosted by Maeve Marsden and Amy Middleton.

This event is a safer space, which means that when entering it, folks agree to work against homophobia, racism, transphobia, classism, fatphobia, ableism, and other forms of oppressive behavior. Please let someone from the Archer team know if this space isn’t upheld.
We acknowledge our event will take place on stolen land. We pay our respects to Indigenous elders past, present and future. Sovereignty was never ceded.
