Finally was able to get my hands on a copy. It really is a beautiful collection of works, if not the most polished final product. If a few weaker essays can be forgiven for the overall impact of the body of work, along with some strong singular essays, this is well worth a read. If only because it is a unique collection of thoughts not often published.

Here's a link to the author's web store, the only place I could find to obtain the zine. It's only $6 + S&H, so not bad. Saving the link here for later. : )http://cripqueer.wearetheones.info/pi...

Recommends it for: Activists, anti-oppresion learners, disabled people, queer people
Recommended to Jay by: Qwo-Li Driskill
Powerful collection of anti-oppression writings from a queer disabled perspective.
It poetically challenges to continue to redefine and reconceptualize what a truly inclusive community might look and feel like.

My only critique is that I wish it never ended!
