When you have fifteen minutes to devote to this, I urge you to have a listen to this articulate anti-assimilationist queer as he constructs an excellent economic reframe of Maine and gives voice to a point of view that was almost entirely stifled during the we-must-have-marriage gay juggernaut in Maine.
Here is the delightful subtitle of his group blog, "Naughty North":
WE ARE COMMITTED TO CELEBRATING OUR QUEEREST SELVES WHILE RESISTING THE DEVASTATING VIOLENCE INHERENT IN THE CONSUMER DRIVEN ASSIMILATIONIST GAYSTREAM. WE WILL DEFEND OURSELVES AGAINST THE BRUTAL SILENCE OF ISOLATION THRU A DIVERSE AND DEDICATED NETWORK OF ACTION ORIENTED FRIENDS AND LOVERS. WE WILL NOT DENY OUR ANGER OR FAIL TO RECOGNIZE THE LINKS BETWEEN QUEER STRUGGLE AND CHALLENGING POWER. NAUGHTY NORTH IS A DEFIANT ORGASM IN THE FACE OF OPPRESSION: ALL ARE WELCOME TO GET OFF WITH US!
(I've often thought that our very own Bil Browning is kindred to this kind of queer whom I have often encountered in the back woods of Maine. Although, ever since he went over to the dark side, he'd be loathe to admit it.)
