About This Book...

by Richard Aslan

From the chwal of Haitian Vodou, to Korean shamans, and third-gender hijra in India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh, queer individuals are used by societies across the world to process dangerous and difficult emotions through ritual action. Drycleaners of the Soul interrogates queer as a social function in the hope of uncovering a Queer Tradition. Part practical guide, part hypothesis, part case study, it examines the intersection of queerness, marginalisation, and ritual.

Drycleaners of the Soul Practice

The book is based on the practice, which explores the relationship between the queer tradition, ritual, and marginalization.
