Relying on that Body

10.00

Relying on that Body collects together all of Matthew Stepanic’s poems from his #RuPoems cycle, in which he wrote a poem dedicated and in response to each week’s eliminated queen from season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race and shared it on his social media. In fourteen poems that vary in form and style, Stepanic explores queer concerns, including male intimacy, internalized homophobia, body issues, and sexual assault. More than a companion guide to the TV season, this chapbook works to further personal and political conversations initiated by the show’s stars. Fans of poetry and Drag Race alike will discover valuable takeaways and inspiration from this moving collection that examines complex and fluctuating queer identities.
