About this author

Raoul Vaneigem wrote that "Nobody lies groaning under the yoke of inauthenticity twenty-four hours a day…there are very few alienations which are not shattered every day for an instant, for an hour, for the space of a dream, by subjective refusal. Words are never completely in the thrall of Power, and no one is ever completely unaware of what is destroying him." (Revolution of Everyday Life, Rebel Press, p124) My interest is in the instances of autonomous activity that persist in the face of the spectacle, that resists subjugation, and that with the oxygen from breathing life back into them, may flare in the future in new ways.

“Love cannot be controlled. It will flow wherever it chooses. It is an essential part of our nature and thus inherently free. Love has no respect for boundaries that would prohibit it based on age, gender, race, religion, class, politics, or ability. It is individuals striving to be happy and, as such, love is an oppositional power to state and institutional authority.”
Rod Dubey, Beautiful In My Worn Clothes: The Transgressions of Love

“The autonomy to have a consensual relationship with whoever we love is the ultimate measure of the freedom of a society.”
Rod Dubey, Beautiful In My Worn Clothes: The Transgressions of Love

“A truly shared kiss requires freedom and equality.”
