Webtext-of-the-Month Review: Hillery Glasby’s “Let Me Queer My Throat”

A multimodal review of Hillery Glasby’s webtext “Let Me Queer My Throat: Queer Rhetorics of Negotiation: Marriage Equality and Homonormativity,” originally published in Harlot: A Revealing Look at the Arts of Persuasion. “Glasby’s webtext,” I write, “weaves the personal, theoretical, and academic together in ways that mimic and enact the day-to-day contradictions and ambivalences of the queer subject, a subject consistently faced with multiple and rival identity narratives. Rather than try to reconcile such multiplicities, Glasby embraces them in both the (anti)argument of the text and in its use of multiple media and (dis)organized form.”
