he subject of the first Salon is QUEER – queer performance, queer tactics, queer approaches, queer identity. How has this once pejorative adjective, transformed itself into many different meanings?, how do we use something that has yet to find its own definition? how does it use us? This blog has a multi-functional intention: to contextualize Queer and, by process of listing local contexts, to expand on what community is for us. Who is currently adding to the conversation? What is shaping it in the here now?
