Queering Labels

What's in a label? We sat down with Kama La Mackerel, a prolific Montreal-based trans artist of colour to chat about identities and labels in a world obsessed with putting people into boxes. We look into what it means to have a label applied to you, what it means to reclaim a label, to exist in the space between, and whether labels are even useful at all!
