Hey Radqueerz!!
Like writing angsty poems in your journal? Enjoy doodling hella gay shit in notebooks?Well, maybe it’s time you shared your stories, thoughts, art & whateverthefuck you want in the upcoming LAQR Space issue!
Yes, space! The normalized spaces of our society are commodified, unfree, oppressive. But we actively create spaces which are liberated within these dominant narratives. The prison industrial complex coupled with the police state, which is increasingly militarized comes down hard on queer, nonwhite bodies and makes our struggle difficult.

"Everyone deserves to be seen as who they are, such as disabled people who want their sexuality to be recognized. Because our society places so much stake in, particularly women’s, sexual desirability that values whiteness, thinness, and able bodied appearance, widespread desexualization of visibly disabled people goes hand-in-hand with the dehumanization of disabled people. This desexualization is directly related to the higher levels of sexual assault and abuse that disabled people experience."
