is The Fairies’ Tree queer? (after Ola Cohn)

A 20 minute video essay looking at Ola Cohn’s creation of The Fairies’ Tree in relation to the history of fairies in 20th century gay identity politics and image theory more broadly.

For over 30 years my work has dealt with the double-edged complexities of gay identity and queer theory.
