Those who live life according to queer theory make a conscious decision to undermine existing social order regarding gender, sex, and sexual orientation.

For me, queer identity is unattainable, once you define it – you miss it. It is a lofty goal one has to strive for without every reaching it. The closet is a marker of a search process: what would be the appearance of a piece of furniture that demands to challenge its role in the domestic space, refuses to stand in place and surrender to its designated purpose, and yet maintains its nature as furniture.
