Belonging: A Queer Manifesto

Caffyn Jesse and Max Tea offer reflections on their longing for a deeper level of queer liberation. They write to invite conversation and community that is shaped by passionate, proud and also humble enquiry into queer belonging. How can a more transformative queer belonging emerge – in our wild queer souls, our counternormative communities, and in the world? This manifesto calls for a conspiracy of kindness that honours the importance of queer community. It describes how we might nurture trauma-informed relationships, and explores how we might mobilize queerness, with its particular meanings and magic, in ways that contribute to the global struggle against exploitation and violence.

“You have and still remain a guiding light, a profound love - across dimensions and illusions of time and space - and a beacon of remembering 'what we are.' In me, You are a Calling Home.”
Mari Abraham
“You opened up a new doorway for me, about how I could be, what my life, my world and my community could look like. You are so powerful, so special - you show me what it means to be a teacher: fallible, full of flaws, and full of beauty, truth and power.”
Kai Cheng Thom
“You are a fiercely loving powerhouse of change and remembering - of the body, stories and erotic wisdom.”
Solanna Anderson
“It is especially important to me personally that you are holding a torch for erotic wellbeing and authentic sexual expression. It is so rare to know an elder who carries wisdom and hope to heal one of humanity's deepest shadows.”
Nijlan Rosalia Bastet
“I couldn't be more grateful for the grace, kindness, love, acceptance and empowerment that I've been shown and taught. I am left speechless when I contemplate the life I've lived before this work, and the massive change and transformation I've found as a result of engaging with this paradigm of relationship with my self and other selves. So thank you, from the depths of my soul, for being you, and sharing you.”
David M
