What the hell is queer theory? Who gets to identify as queer? Does it mean anything to call yourself a “queer ally”?
These are the kinds of questions writers Benjamin Riley and Simon Copland ask on Queers, a discussion and interview podcast about critical queer politics and culture.
Simon Copland is a PhD Student in Sociology at the ANU. He is a freelance writer with a focus on gender, sexuality and politics. In his spare time he does powerlifting, loves rugby union and is a David Bowie fanatic.
