  • Pleasure Activism is a collection of essays, interviews, poetry, and art composed and or collected by adrienne maree brown The structure and organization of the book is well thought out as it spaces each of these mediums apart so that the reader is not over saturated The book is very Queer and trans inclusive and most of the entries and interviews are with women, gender non conforming, and or trans people of color There is one somewhat academic essay but the rest of the entries involve peop Plea [...]


  • Enjoyed the last quarter of the book and some essays along the way but felt mostly like a missed opportunity to go deeper into nonsexual pleasures and explore the dynamic nature of pleasure in all kinds of bodies Food in particular felt like a glaring omission in a supposedly fat positive book Also in general lots of assumptions about the universality of sexual experiences and pleasures Missing an understanding of asexuality, of disability, and of sexual trauma that doesn t just get immediate En [...]

  • Wow wow wow This book shifted something in me Never has a book felt this essential since the first time I read This Bridge Called My Back.


  • Phenomenal anthology of radical and liberation focused essays Something I have always, always appreciated about adrienne maree brown is that she is so invested in the decentralization despecialization of knowledge she knows what she knows, and that s a whole lot, but she never suggests that she is the most scholarly when it comes to Octavia E Butler, speculative fiction, Black liberation work, or pleasure activism She is ALWAYS thanking her teachers and naming the political legacies in which Phe [...]


  • I will read this again and again and again How grateful I am to live and breathe in a time and space where I am given the gift of tools like this.
