The gut attracts meaning but repels fixed identities, never fully represented, never legible, a territory to remain hidden and taboo.

A greek-orthodox archbishop made a poetically homophobic statement last year: “homosexuals adore the fecal pipe more than anything in life.” The feces pipe, the dirty and excremental when becoming a site of love and relationality acquires the status of a perverted paradox, an ad hoc space of queer resistance.

In this small publication we gather a collection of illustrations, poems and texts from artists and theorists who reflect on embodiment in a visceral, scatological and almost apocryphal way – creating a queer anatomy lesson that exposes the gut to the light of a poetic scrutiny.
