About a Bicycle is pleased to announce the launch of our fifth issue Can’t Live With ‘Em, Can’t Kill ‘Em! Over the summer AAB discussed and interrogated “the couple-form” or what Clémence X. Clementine and Associates from the Infinite Venom Girl Gang designate as a compulsory heterosexual union, which “promises that, upon entering its grasp, one will no longer suffer from alienation, from isolation, from boredom, from rootlessness.” The new issue circles a constellation of relationships, sex, gendered and racialized violence, real-estate and debt. Contributors include: Amy De’Ath, Megan Hepburn, Penelope Hetherington, Anahita Jamali Rad, Danielle LaFrance, Dorothy Trujillo Lusk, Lisa Macleod, Nikki Reimer, Carolyn Richard, and Stephanie Young. The evening will consist of readings, beverages, and good company.
AAB is a collective of self-identified women who meet to discuss critical texts and radical politics. Each reading and discussion series culminates in a journal of the same name. For more information about present and past projects visit us at aboutabicycle.wordpress.com.
