Slack Pussy Session 6: Testo Junkie (2008) by Paul B. Preciado

April 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Session 6: Testo Junkie (2008) by Paul B. Preciado. Recommended by Maggie Nelson.

This is what Nelson says:

    “TESTO JUNKIE is a wild and edifying ride, and presses hard on and sometimes through presumptions about gender, desire, feminism, lesbian/gay intersections, and queer pasts, presents, and futures. It’s literary, academic, complex, rip-roaring, controversial, and often quite hot.”

We will be reading three chapters, “Testogel”, “The History of Technosexuality” and “In Which The Body Of VD Becomes An Element In An Experimental Context”.

The extract is available as a PDF here.

Slack Pussy reading group maps out a can(y)on of trans, and queer women, living writers. We are reading in a chain. The books we read and the suggestions given by each author will be kept in the MayDay archive. Each month, MayDay’s archivists will search their collection for historical material, in order to provide broader political and social context to issues raised in the book we are reading.

Sessions are held monthly, and texts will be made available by email. We ask you to read the text in advance of the session.To join our mailing list email: slackpuss.rg@gmail.com

No prior knowledge is necessary – and all are welcome. You can join at any point in the chain. If you have missed past sessions and you would like to catch up, please let us know.
