“Queer love reconfigures the way you move through the world when, at last, you are touched softly, gently and with such tenderness”

Deidre’s social media reads like a beau­ti­ful love let­ter to les­bian­ism, and their per­son­al work reflects their event­ful life—from a case of sex­u­al vio­lence in Deidre’s child­hood to mar­ry­ing their pla­ton­ic part­ner. Fer­rars & Fields talks to Dei­dre about queer love and its part in the process of heal­ing from sex­u­al trauma.

Die (Un-)Ordnung der Bilder

Wir sehen, was wir sehen sollen. Seit­dem das Orig­i­nal eines Kunst­werks beliebig repro­duzier­bar ist, wis­sen wir nicht mehr, was wir sehen. Manch­mal sehen wir eine Frau. Und meis­tens sehen wir eine Frau, die gese­hen wird. Und das ist nicht dasselbe.

“Now, the fire can come back at any time, and it will not be as trau­ma­tiz­ing as it was before; flames will be noth­ing but old lovers wel­comed back into a house haunt­ed by their absence. His ther­a­pist her­self said it: mean­ing can be found in chaos. It is, after all, nicer to see the glass half-emp­ty than to admit that there is no glass anymore.”

STORIES NEED PERSPECTIVES NEED MARGINALIZED VOICES NEED FUNDS.

We publish on the whole spectrum of what it means to be a fully fleshed out human being. Our essays, research, vulnerability and stories discuss queerness, feminism, anti-racism, disability and mental health as well as art, literature, film and media, featuring an exclusive digital exhibition. We make ourselves heard like thunder in a world overrun by battle, and we always seek to amplify the voices of others.

We believe it matters that out work reaches anyone with access to the internet, regardless of their financial situation and whether they can afford education. We write to change the world, but we depend on donations to pay for our annual website plan.

If you choose to support us, you will be listed as a sponsor for 2023.
