I’m launching QUEER.ARCHIVE.WORK 2 (1923 INTERNET ARCHIVE EDITION) on January 25, 2019 as a special edition of 100 copies, distributed in a reading room at the Internet Archive in San Francisco. This second edition of QUEER.ARCHIVE.WORK is a newsprint publication and set of risograph prints that focuses on lesser-known material from 1923—including rare, historical LGBTQ content that has been digitized for the first time. This publication is being produced while I’m artist-in-residence at the Internet Archive for January 2019, and is part of the Archive’s celebration of the newly-expanded public domain.

I’ll give the talk “Publishing as Practice as Resistance” on January 24, 2019 at California College of the Arts (10am at the CCA Writing Studio at 195 DeHaro Street, San Francisco).
