    New book Queer Geographies: Beirut, Tijuana, Copenhagen.

  • Impressum

    This book explores the possibilities of queer identities lived outside of the heteronormative supremacy, uncovering how gender and sexuality are shaped differently by the landscapes of cities and examining how we can shape and form the city ourselves. The works and texts stem from Queer Geography workshops held in Beirut, Tijuana, and Copenhagen.

    Edited by Lasse Lau, Mirene Arsanios, Felipe Zuñiga and Mathias Kryger. Design Omar Mismar
