This kitchen talk is dedicated to the presentation of an online issue on a topic of “Decoloniality” created by Unit. The issue consists of ten diverse stories that offer unique perspectives and approaches from Central Asia, Eastern Europe and South Caucasus. But what does it mean to decolonise something (or someone) from a queer perspective? It means revisiting the past and uncovering traces of queer history within one’s culture that was changed through colonization. It means sitting down and reflecting on one’s own positionality as a colonial subject. It means finding ways of resistance towards neo-colonial and neoliberal politics of today. And for many this way of resistance means to be queer.
