Any Day Now

Queerness, Disability, and the Trouble with Homonormativity

(p.272) 11 Any Day Now
Disability Media Studies

Robert McRuer

NYU Press

Robert McRuer considers how the film Any Day Now (Travis Fine, 2012) may serve as a model for bringing concerns about disability and immigration into conversations about contemporary homonormativity. Queer scholars’ and activists’ critiques of homonormativity, often characterized by the fight for gay marriage and adoption rights, rest on its mainstreaming goals, and its erasure of alternative forms of kinship and community. McRuer reads Any Day Now as resisting homonormativity through its presentation of modes of crip desire, desiring togetherness in and through embodied differences.

Keywords:   film, queer, homonormativity, disability, crip desire
