Hot Pants Manifesto

Gaze through my polynoculars to see a future world emerging from the ruins of heteronormative limitations, transformed over eons of volcanic time. In this queer ecotopia the genderless folks who wear hot pants and prophetic body art will be engineering a city-sized earth ship on our island that was once a mountaintop. Parading through a Pompeiian dream, these descendant artifacts tell a story of queer escape, protection, and ultimately renewal on the dynamic landscape of an evolving earth. My partner’s body and our partnered collective bodies rise with the oceans. Armed with pentadyke pocketgasms and handmade unmaking tools, we are finding communities in the mountains where the queer future lies restless. Expressive clothing is a living artifact of our movement, indicating queerness as a guide for survival through change.
