Queer: A Dictionary/Fragments

Fragments of text — written, quoted, analysed — assembled into a dictionary of sorts. 

An attempt at mapping queer culture. 

Unfinished, incomplete — forever needing more.

    MA Critical Writing in Art & Design, 2018

  • I am a creative, focused and passionate individual aspiring to go into journalism, media and/or publishing. My background in art history has given me an advanced aesthetic sensibility, as well as a developed academic mindset. I have written for a wide variety of publications, engaging extensively with student journalism during my time in Cambridge and writing freelance since moving to London. Where possible, I have written on LGBT+ issues — particularly cultural responses to AIDS in America and Europe — and focussed my MA on modern LGBT+ culture.
