Sinister Wisdom 110: Dump Trump features serious, satirical, and humorous writing in varied genres and forms, e.g., email correspondence, essay, poetry, short fiction, blog entries, novel excerpt, and interview—all reflecting lesbian ideas, notions, and actions of/for what it will take to unseat the Trump regime.
This issue of Sinister Wisdom emphasizes the ways in which struggle is a lifelong vision and commitment to realizing a better world, even if we argue that the Trump era represents a particularly urgent call to action. And to echo Morgan Gwenwald, lesbians have been doing this work a long time. As always, we include a range of lesbians/ queer voices of all races, ethnicities, ages, abilities, religions, and gender identities. We explore what Trump politics has meant to us as lesbians/queers, document its chronology, reflect on historical resistance, and commemorate the power of lesbian/queer art and activism against a hostile state. And finally this issue is an issue against forgetting that, lesbian resistance is, as Joan Nestle says, older than the Trump era and will last longer.
