Quinn Eades

A stylized headshot of Quinn Eades, lifting the collar of his shirt, which is rolled up to reveal colourful tattoo sleeves.

Quinn Eades is a writer, researcher, editor, gutter philosopher and poet, whose book Rallying was awarded the 2018 Mary Gilmore Award for best first book of poetry. He is the author of all the beginnings: a queer autobiography of the body, and is currently working on three books: a collaborative photographic/poetic text called QUEERDOM with photographer and partner Jamie James; is the body home—an autobiography of the trauma body; and a sole-authored essay collection, Gender is Burning. When he’s not working, Quinn is hanging with his kids, cuddling his pups, watching reruns of Star Trek Discovery, and writing/dreaming utopic decolonial transqueer futures.

You’ll find Quinn’s work, First Women’s Public Toilet, in our Taking Space journey.
