Iphigenia and Other Daughters

Ellen Mclaughlin

Orestes is bitter queerness, barely living, carrying nothing but disillusionment and drama, love and hate, death and life.

He never had a chance to be innocent, the ugly truth of the world has been his home, his school, his jail.

There is not much left they can do to him, but there is so much he can do to them.

Iphigenia is innocent queerness, living with such privilege that she doesn’t yet know how different she is, doesn’t yet know her fate, and yet she is faster to catch on than her mother.

Iphigenia understands, without any other lessons on queerness, what can be done, what will be done, and what “must be done”, for her to live briefly, but brightly.

Their hopes for freedom, for a broken cycle, arise from the recognition of found family, the reinterpretation of the divine, the impact of mute visibility, the resistance to business as usual, and the radical acts of queers.
