LATERAL SWAY is a project exploring queer relationality and intimacy at the intersections of Polish-Canadian counterpublics. It is haunted by the nocturnal imaginary, in a collapsed temporality of past and present; not quite in time but in between. There are energetic residues, remainders of, and desire for, what is missing and morphing through memory. Stories of some queer communities are invisible, as many queers are still struggling to appear in public spaces and create their own archives. These stories vibrate with the urgency to materialize, and they find their way into the frame of this project. The frame resonates with the voice of the collection’s young lesbian speaker, recounting her experiences from a different hemisphere, mobilizing the erotic to create spaces of togetherness in the dynamics of recognizing one another, finding common genealogies, and building queer futures.
