Phoenix Danger travels through time and space, parsing through queer theory to collect the anecdotes, relics, and visions that shape our queer present and break ground on our queer futures. In each episode, we’ll review the work of a different queer theorist, wrapping personal narratives into the fabric of each era, considering the role of queer theory in documenting survival and struggle. It’s the queer theory class you didn’t know you needed, where Danger breaks down complicated topics and tells you how these ideas saved their life.
