Bitch Popaganda: Featuring Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore

The book cover of Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots, which pictures two urinals, one of which is filled with accoutrements of glamour, such as beaded necklaces, beautiful fabrics, and sequinsIn the latest issue of Bitch, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore asks, "What if the real problem isn't flamboyance or cocksucking or limp wrists, but a straight world that rejects gay people and a gay world that seeks legitimacy only for those willing to conform to a straight society?" ("Homo Work," interview by Jessica Hoffmann). Writer, editor, activist, artist, filmmaker, critic, and troublemaker, Mattilda stopped by the Bitch Media offices this weekend to do a Popaganda session with me, Kelsey, and Andi. In this podcast episode, we'll talk about her new anthology Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots?, language and reclamation, the recent movie Weekend, and more! If you're a Portland resident, she's speaking at the Hawthorne Powell's tonight at 7:30 along with Why Are Faggots contributors River Willow Fagan and Ezra RedEagle Whitman. For more info on her book tour, visit her events page, and look for Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots? in an independent bookstore near you!
