Queer Technologies - Automating Perverse Possibilities

Queer Technologies is a company, an art collective, and an activist group that produces a product line for queer technological agency, interventions, and social formation. QT products include transCoder, a queer programming anti-language; ENgenderingGenderChangers, a ?solution? to Gender Adapters? male/female binary; and Gay Bombs, a technical manual manifesto that outlines a ?how to? of queer networked activism. QT products are often displayed and deployed at the Disingenuous Bar, which offers a heterotopic space for political support for ?technical? problems. QT products are also shop-dropped in various consumer electronics stores, such as Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, and Target.

Queer Technologies produces flows of resistance within larger spheres of capitalist structurations, ?identifying? and ?disidentiying? with these spheres in tandem. All pieces are designed as product, artwork, and political tool, materialized through an industrial manufacturing process so that they may be disseminated widely.
