We have come to accept that architecture sustains matrices of patriarchy and heteronormativity. This thesis frames the subject around those who have been excluded from the canonical discourse, in the wider scene termed 'Queer'. It asks how we might begin to think of architecture beyond accepted structures - beyond binarization and oppositional logic. By tracing the historical context of specific events, sites, and urban zones, that have come to define LGBTQI2+ movements and culture, this study remains grounded in queer identities while uncovering an attitude of resistance and transformation. Born often out of necessity and survival, and existing outside heteronormative boundaries, these moments of appropriation begin to define an active queering of space. Taking a turn towards architecture and the potential for queering, the emerging project analyzes the bounds of inside/outside rhetoric and questions how to create new significations with a charge of multiplicity, openness, contradiction and contention.
