Queer Resistance in the Age of Austerity:
A Presentation by Tegan Eanelli and Fray Baroque; editors of “Queer Ultra Violence: Bash Back! Anthology”

Queer Ultra Violence: Bash Back! Anthology published by Ardent Press, is an analytical anthology that chronicles the (non)organization and militant queer tendency known as Bash Back! Although short lived, Bash Back! had an astonishing impact on both radical and queer organizing in the United States. Bash Back! took on gay assimilation, anti-queer violence, the queer radical establishment, and capitalism with a queer struggle that rejected traditional identity politics. The anthology complies essays,
interviews, and communiqués to document the new queer tendency spawned bythe Bash Back! years.

As capitalism and the state are thrown into deeper and deeper crisis,
queers and all others historically excluded from both formal economies and from the safety net of the nuclear family, will bear the brunt of the age of austerity. Reflecting critically on the past several years of radical queer action and imagination, the editors of Bash Back! Queer Ultraviolence will attempt to navigate queer space and potential in a world torn by crisis. Through this talk, Eanelli and Baroque will present a series of proposals for action and survival, taking as their starting point the position of queer autonomy and queer revolt against the State and Capital. This lecture will theorize queer gangs, self-defense networks, occupations, communes and a praxis of vengeance.
