Recommendation: Exile and Pride by Eli Clare

Sunshine Wolfe recommends…

Eli Clare is one of my favorite genderqueer, queer, disability, and class activists. Zi is also a great racial justice ally. This book is poetic, personal, and powerful. One of my favorite sections includes the lines— “The body as home, but only if it is understood that bodies can be stolen… The body as home, but only if stolen bodies can be reclaimed.”

I highly encourage reading Eli Clare’s work and checking out hir website.
