Published twice a year, Archer offers a multifaceted look at sex, gender and identity, spotlighting the diverse attitudes towards sex and sexuality, while often drawing links to topics ranging from social housing and and religion, to migrancy and masturbation.
'Much like Home' — the theme of this issue — these are undoubtedly complex subjects, but Archer embraces the challenge: 'Issue #17 takes this complexity on, rather than shying away from it. It celebrates queer mob's resistance, survival and community love. It follows a journey of migration, along with pressures to assimilate... It acknowledges that for some of us, our best lives are lived outside of convention and tradition.'
