Queer Kinship

Alright y'all, I was watching a clip from one of my favorite movies, Paris is Burning, and thought it would be worth sharing as one last example of different kinds of kinship -- basically what's often referred to as a "queer kinship" -- kinship based more on families-of-choice rather than families-of-origin.

One more way of rethinking familial structures (and a lot of it sounds in line with stuff you already threw out while we were concept-mapping) -- though the Levi-Strauss is important in order to understand what future iterations of "kinship" take issue with and try to reshape.

Hope it's useful to some of you!
