Carlos Motta, a queer Colombian-American multi-disciplinary artist making his home in New York City, has launched and ambitious new web-based project called We Who Feel Differently. The project exists largely as an online database of documentary style video interviews with LGBTIQ activists/artists/academics sharing their critical perspectives on the battle over LGBTIQ rights from their own geo-political contexts (Colombia, South Korea, Norway, and the United States).
In addition to the video database, Carlos and co-editor Christina Motta have assembled a narrative text pulling on six major themes from the interviews including discussion on the limits of tolerance/liberalism, trans and intersex identities, AIDS activism, and much more.
Rounding out the web-based project is a sporadically published online journal with its inaugural issue, Queerly Yours: Thoughts and Afterthoughts on Marriage Equality, focused on opening up space for more complicated conversations about LGBTIQ investments in this thing we call marriage. Yasmin Nair and I were asked by Carlos to put together a piece for the journal about our perspectives on gay marriage through our participation with Against Equality. I was also interviewed as part of the video database of American LGBTIQ participants.
