QUEER THEORY TEXTS. Cruising Utopia by Jose Esteban Munoz

“José Esteban Muñoz recalls the queer past for guidance in presaging its future. He considers the job of seminal music artists and authors such as for example Andy Warhol, LeRoi Jones, Frank O’Hara, Ray Johnson, Fred Herko, Samuel Delany, and Elizabeth Bishop, alongside contemporary performance and artistic performers like Dynasty Handbag, My Barbarian, Luke Dowd, Tony simply, and Kevin McCarty so that you can decipher the illumination that is anticipatory of as well as its uncanny ability to open up windows to your future. A“not yet here” that critically engages pragmatic presentism in a startling repudiation of what the LGBT movement has held dear, Muñoz contends that queerness is instead a futurity bound phenomenon.
