I am equally in awe of the ways in which queer children navigate a homophobic public sphere that would rather they did not exist. The obstacles and assaults that pressure and fracture such young lives as brutally as a police bully club. I understand the strategies and rituals that allow survival in such hostile cultural waters, and I in turn feel certain compulsion to try to articulate and explicate these practices of survival.

Though Munyoz does have a clear idea in mind for the work he wants disidentification to do, he develops it through investigating the way disidentification works in the cultural productions of a handful This one grew on me.

Though Munyoz does have a clear idea in mind for the work he wants disidentification to do, he develops it through investigating the way disidentification works in the cultural productions of a handful of avant-garde queer artists of color. Where the book is weakest, however, is its repetitive cycles. Further, the book gives nearly a dozen definitions of disidentification and makes the very term seem almost meaningless.

January 1, Karli This work inspires and re-inspires every time I pick it up. January 1, nicole oh my god. However, it showed me a lot about racism, white supremacy and gender identities in the pop art world, and about how creating a counter to counter-cultures helps fight those issues.

José Esteban Muñoz

Butler sees disidentification as a misrecognition, a simultaneous seeing and failure to see desirable identifications. This misrecognition is not simply missing what one desires in public discourses; rather it is a seeing slant, an identifying and a disidentifying to create or recover other kinds of elided or disavowed identifications. Thus, disidentification is a step further than cracking open the code of the majority; it proceeds to use this code as raw material for representing a disempowered politics or positionality that has been rendered unthinkable by the dominant culture. In its pictures of scantly clad muscle men, it seemed on one hand to reify certain kinds of masculinity dominant at the time and characteristic of the patriarchy—strength, prowess, dominance. In this regard, Physique Pictorial was not unlike any other muscle or bodybuilding magazine of the era that continues to be popular to this day among straight men. At the same time, Physique Pictorial circulated primarily amongst midth-century gay men, who fetishized the images. Indeed, Physique Pictorial seems in retrospect an early form of gay visual pornography, and some critics and historians have noted its place in the formation of mid-century gay cultures see Meem et al.

Disidentifications

Itself a complex act of disidentification, this vibrant and venturesome book unveils queer worldmaking at its passionate best. Disidentifications is also something of a performance in its own right, an attempt to fashion a queer world by working on, with, and against dominant ideology. Disidentifications beautifully describes transformative performances of sexuality and race in ways that reverberate dramatically, further transforming the conditions of possibility for those who encounter the text, its world of pleasures, images, and analyses. The sheer value of this archive of queer world-making acts cannot be overestimated: as citation keeps the films, performances, and texts open and animating, queer commentary like this sustains resistance to and optimism against the forces of exhaustion. These essays are consistently enlightening and provocative.
