Kyiv. Ukraine. Interviews that have queer-anarchists regarding Kyiv about their interest, concept and you will points of view. This is certainly part cuatro from several interview, we are not alert to english translations of your other step three interview.
What exactly is queer in your information?
“Queer” literally are means unusual, other, needless to say with negative connotations initially. This had previously been how you can phone call gay and you may transgender members of buy to help you humiliate and you will insult her or him. However, over the years the expression gained the meaning away from “weird, therefore unusual.” In my situation queer means neighborhood and mind-personality one to appears once alienation, the reason for which is our huge difference of other people, first and foremost, the difference into the sexual direction.
Due to Christianity homosexuality might some thing awkward, improper, abnormal, although it was natural, always has been and always will be. Calling ourselves “queers”, i say: “An adequate amount of that it!” towards heteronormative business and you will problem it fixing a unique self-respect; we restore an impression that people are also human beings, maybe not bad and possibly in certain implies in addition to this than the others.
Which provocation, in addition, ‘s the substance off Satanism. However it has got nothing to do with the belief within the otherworldly forces and you can spiritual sacrifices – it’s an attack toward oriented not true and you may depraved Christian mentality, its thinking, principles and you can norms.
It is theory and practice, solutions to very first issues (Just what? Exactly who? Exactly how? As to why?) And, obviously, an appropriate. Progressive queer principle is actually tame and you will shaky, it’s got zero public finest, it will not render one thing specific. Through it you will only have the ability to remember that around are other someone as you. Exactly what to complete next and how to alter everything hate, queer concept claims nothing regarding it. Thus you’ll find best queers, queers out of superstition, otherwise people who love merely queer visual appeals. Without big governmental stuff, queer easily gets a product and you can an item of field. Just when you look at the synthesis having anarchism do the queer reveal its correct social possible, will bring approaches to existential inquiries and will be offering a path to self-esteem. Synthesis with other ideologies – populism, appropriation and you will hype. State the fresh K41 is a good illustration of this.
Are you aware that understanding on the subject: “ Federalism, Socialism and you may Antitheologism” by the Bakunin (I Chinese Sites dating app do highly recommend all their theoretic and you may standard really works in general), biographies and you can courses for the facts from landowners, particularly Sophia Perovskaya, Nietzsche, all out of Murray Bookchin, Mao Zedong, messages from “Black Panthers”, “The newest Next Industry Combat” of the Subcomandante Marcos, the newest courses of your own RTiP collaborative for the anarchism and you will viewpoints.
What do you do from inside the structure from queer activism?
Subsequently I am positively working in social and you can political items. I-go so you’re able to rallies, sit-in essential events, plan out lectures, seminars and you will conferences. Recently i aided to organize a self-coverage take to class having LGBTQ + individuals, in which we performed first real degree, learned to complete kicks, boxed, learned how to handle self-shelter, and you can sparred. I hope one to soon town tend to see the need for self-cover and you may leading edge information. Then your earliest Queer Bashback bands can look. Actually the base because of it was reduced becoming put. And also the last not minimum of I really works and you may financially support the antifa in addition to anarchist way.
How can you explain the new Kyiv / Ukrainian LGBTQ + neighborhood? What is actually the structure, the facts?
There is absolutely no people – you can find “crowds” but making it more convenient we are going to ignore this problem. I believe the newest “community” has several thousand effective members and 1000s of “supporters” (people who visit the Pride and don’t face LGBTQ + phobias inside day to day life).
