Words: Jay Weingarten
Jay Keery Weingarten is an active commodifier of their own queerness on many levels, the most obvious of which is that they quite literally sell gay merch to an audience of mostly straight people. They are attending the University of Massachusetts Amherst in order to receive a Masters in Poetry so as to commodify queerness from a more privileged platform, using flourishes of fancy language to dazzle and entice their straight peers. If it makes you feel better about the money you're spending on this performance, they've recently been published in Pilot Press London's Queer Anthology of Rage as well as featured in Girls Like Us magazine, both publications highly recommended for straight people to check out.
