About This Blog

Welcome to Amak's blog, The Queer Behind the Mirror!

Amak is a queer, polyamorous, vegan art lover who works as a research assistant and is presently writing a graduate thesis in Peterborough/Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Here, he writes about his musings on art and literature, discusses the findings of his research on colonial history, deconstructs the doxa of relationships/intimacies, comes out with his latent kinkyness, and also engages in serious pieces that lean towards his leftist, ecologist and anti-colonial politics. In these pages, you will also find most of his fiction and poetry.

This blog is broadly divided into these major labels: anecdote, fiction, intimacy, literature/culture, opinion, poetry, portrait, post/anti-colonial, queer, travel and video.
