“Lesbians Will Always Be Here And Have Always Been Here”: Talking Queer Visibility, Butchness, And Sinister Wisdom With Writer Carina Julig

works

I sit down with fellow writer Carina Julig to learn about her time with the journal and what lesbian art means today.

It seems like an important step for lesbian visibility in popular culture. So what’s the problem?
