Over March and the beginning of April 2020, GenderFail founder Be Oakley worked on a series of new essays and compiled them into a 2nd GenderFail Reader. GenderFail Reader 2 is a compilation of four new essays written during this pandemic including Small Publishing and Finding Ways to Live, A Touch that You Can Really Feel, Collective Self Isolations: Resistance in the Care of Others and the Violence of Naming.
This reader also includes three new poems, Being an Instrument, Douche and Making Friends at 30, by my partner Noah LeBien, who as become such an important collaborator through my work with GenderFail. Noah also expanded their essay, Betraying Authority: Notes on Queer Art that was previously published as a zine.
This is the 2nd reader in an ongoing series of publications looking into subjects that help drive GenderFail.
