“Rather than being lovers in order to breathe, we are queer in order to escape asphyxia.”
Guy Hocquenghem, The Screwball Asses

“Leftism dries up whatever it touches.”
Guy Hocquenghem

“Here, we rebuilt the Leftist theater. There, we rebuilt the carnival of stars to assemble the next barricades in evening gowns. Theory for the sake of theory collided with madness for the sake of madness,and they both tried to reconcile themselves in the imperialism of youth and beauty.”
Guy Hocquenghem, The Screwball Asses
