For Antonio Urdiales

Leo Bersani // Guy Hocquenghem // Lee Edelman // Michel Foucault // Judith Butler

"Leather and muscles are defiled by a sexually feminized body, although [...] the macho male’s rejection of his representation by the leather queen can also be accompanied by the secret satisfaction of knowing that the leather queen, for all his despicable blasphemy, at least intends to pay worshipful tribute to the style and behavior he defiles."

"Is The Rectum A Grave?" (Leo Bersani, 1987)

"Half a dozen bodies, anonymous in the dim light, are enlaced there in what complex circuitries one cannot immediately decipher. I feel burdened by the enforced blindness, the acrid smell of piss chokes me and I recoil, feeling guilty immediately. The boy at my side murmurs in my ear: 'What? Are you ashamed?' He might just as well have said: 'Are you ashamed, comrade?'
Well, yes, I was ashamed. But I was ashamed of my shame. It is as
if homosexual desire could only be inscribed where repression has
inscribed it. I know how many queers only have toilets in which
to touch each other. It depresses me that those who have decided
to come out of hiding continue to project their excitement in the
miserable places that the system condescends to allow them and
where the police provoke them."

"The Screwball Asses" (Guy Hocquenghem, 1972)
