"Queering Sexual Violence seeks to confront the current state of the anti- sexual violence movement. It seeks to address the ways some survivors are centralized and some are relegated to the margins. This anthology will bring visibility to those of us that are rendered invisible by mainstream anti-sexual violence work, organizing and healing spaces. It works to magnify those of us who find ourselves defined by splintered identities and it acknowledges how we are often unable to weave all of these truths together because of mainstream dominance and erasure. Through critical and personal narratives, this anthology addresses the limitations of a society that is not only unequipped to deal with rape culture but is also unable to look at it without the lens of heterosexual privilege and through the interests of a gender binary system." -- Official Facebook page.
"Often pushed to the margins, queer, transgender and gender non-conforming survivors have been organizing in anti-violence work since the birth of the movement. Queering Sexual Violence: Radical Voices from Within the Anti-Violence Movement locates them at the center of the anti-violence movement and creates a space for their voices to be heard. Moving beyond dominant narratives and the traditional "violence against women" framework, the book is multi-gendered, multi-racial and multi-layered. This thirty-seven piece collection disrupts the mainstream conversations about sexual violence and connects them to disability justice, sex worker rights, healing justice, racial justice, gender self-determination, queer & trans liberation and prison industrial complex abolition through reflections, personal narrative, and strategies for resistance and healing. Where systems, institutions, families, communities and partners have failed them, this collection lifts them up, honors a multitude of lived experiences and shares the radical work that is being done outside mainstream anti-violence and the non-profit industrial complex." -- Publisher's description
