Cool things I read this week

What it’s like to be queer and Muslim – photo series by Samra Habib, documenting the lives of queer Muslims living in North America and Europe

Ketchup sandwiches, and other things stupid poor people eat – article by Anastasia Basil exploring what it is to be poor in the US today

My night out in Cleveland with the worst men on the internet – feminist journalist Laurie Penny is invited to “the gayest neo-fascist rally at the Republican national convention”, with other attendees including Milo Yiannopoulos and RoK’s RooshV.

Photoseries by Donato Di Camillo, who became a photographer whilst in prison

The queer poor aesthetic – article by Shak’ar Mujukian exploring the invisibility and erasure of working class people in theoretically inclusive queer spaces. Quite a good read, although you definitely have to filter out the jargon a bit.
