Welcome to Queerhana: a party where the sound system is locked in a cage, the DJ is hidden in an underground bomb shelter and sparkling queer saints lead the dance. Resisting commercial culture and political oppression, one of the very first queer movements to appear in the Middle East was formed in Tel Aviv in 2001. It was inspired by punk and raves, envisioned a world of total acceptance, and embodied the concept of Temporary Autonomous Zones. A decade and a half later, this book shares the untold story of an inspiring moment in Queer history and resistance. The authors, the organisers and participants of Queerhana’s events, share their stories, discuss the politics of queer spaces and manifest visions for a better future.
