It’s like we are refugees in our own country, on our own land. Hunted by coppers and racists alike, we remember how our ancestors must have felt as we live through it.

Archer Magazine #20: The RESISTANCE issue out 2024. Queer experience cannot be watered down into a single concept, but one thread that connects us all is resistance.

‘Overflow’ is a hilarious and devastating tour of women’s bathrooms, who is allowed in and who is kept out.

“The status of trash, the way it inhabits the alley, the gutter or the margins of society, is a site of interest for me.” Paul Yore chats with Alex Creece.
