Fingerspelling Lesson by t pomar

t pomar is a Brighton-based grrrl academic. When not reading queer/feminist theory, this queermo can be found writing; drawing; looking for hidden treasures in second-hand bookstores; fiddling with her microKORG; ranting on about one thing or another; flicking through the latest issues at Dave’s Comics; drinking cheap whiskey in the North Laine district. Not simultaneously… that’d be crazy and some serious bionic multitasking… which would be amazing!
