The Many Headed Hydra Magazine #4

The first in a series of publications emerging from the transoceanic platform a language where yesterday and tomorrow are the same word. Kal, kal RITUALS proposes queer and trans feminist ecologies, embodiments and mythmaking. The contributions trace and disrupt cross-colonial legacies through bodies of water lapping at the shorelines of the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Atlantic. kal RITUALS is an ode to transterritorial alliances that disrupt binary contours of time and being. 

kal RITUALS assembles practices of queer world building in extended pandemic time, amidst deep ecological and social transformations, offering an expression of anti-colonial resistance and joy.
