Twilight of Queerness:
from Binaries to Connectivity

Most current LGBT political activism focuses on the
marriage/anti-marriage debate, and accordingly, scholarship debate
disputes relational/anti-relational ideologies. Both grossly miss a
larger political and intellectual potential for queer studies and that
the definition of discreet identity binaries is, itself, destructive
to a truly radical and progressive discourse.
