This issue started as “A Revolutionary Archive of 2020,” and acquired a life of its own. It took the shapes and contours of the writing circle Kohl called for in early 2021. The circle met virtually for eight Saturdays. Tearing through the realisms of lockdown, migration, COVID-19, and occupation, we created an oasis for us to grieve, breathe, be in solidarity with each other, and do community differently. Our counter-archives spilled over disembodied archives. Despite all the odds, the circle continues to be our queer utopia in the making.
