Life Goals of the Millennials: or The Commune Manifesto
is about growing up queer and not growing out of it. In The Commune we champion platonic love and commitment. We tell stories, find good in those around us, holdfast our beliefs and each other, and we face down the practicalities of a world not made for us. The Commune Manifesto has taken shape over 10 years of late-night conversations in Glasgow tenements. It is dedicated to every beautiful soul who feels lost on their own, or terrified of losing their community as they grow older and feel the pressure to settle down. Finally, it is a personal statement of intent, an affirmation, a life goal, to retain the joy that comes from our hardfought and close-knit bonds. These poems visualise the hope we have in a future together. Come join us in the Commune!
