Queer: Documents of Contemporary Art

(Hi-Jack This Queers!) Gay Bombs is a technical manual manifesto that outlines a “how to” of queer networked activism. Gay Bombs is a reverse discourse, a re-inscription, a mutating body politic, a multitude, a queer terrorist assemblage of networked activists, deploying new technologically queer sensibilities. Gay Bombs is a technical manual designed to explicate and frame the discourses of Queer Technologies. In this userʼs guide, a “how to” of queer political action and formation is outlined through the use and distribution of Queer Technologies. Topics include: understanding queer technological tactics, creating and organizing, working with consumerism, and managing output.
