deviant proposals: an anti binary journal
anderson matthew’s deviant proposals: an anti-binary journal is a collection of works by queer artists from around the globe. the project was born out of matthew’s struggle to feel fully connected to the queer community in los angeles. by turning to his international peers, this journal came into existence. the project began when matthew compiled “ruminations and provocations by queer persons with a deep need to act / think / feel in opposition to strict binary systems according to (but not limited by) sexuality, gender, performance or identity.” the numerous contributing artists were given the freedom to submit work in any written format focusing on pondering the many questions that may have crossed their paths in relation to anti-binary modes of life, and its inherent provocation of the existing mainstream narratives and discourse. matthew’s artist book creates a physical space where different voices of queerness converse, coexist and thrive.
