The Kinsey Scale is an archaic measure of homosexuality on a scale of 0-6, thought up by Dr. Alfred Kinsey in 1948. It ranks queerness with 0 being completely heterosexual, 6 being fully homosexual, and 3 being a perfect split down the middle. But the world is ending, and modern queers are famously bad at numbers. ‘Kinsey Scale for the Emotionally Fragile Queer’ is a rewriting of the original scale, measured to fit the expansiveness of a generation of queers who have lived from apocalypse to apocalypse.

In this Kinsey Scale, our lives are not represented by rigid numbers, but by poetry on queer love, happiness, protest, friendships, and the ability of queers to adapt to a changing world. Our rituals, our families, our romances, there is place for all of them in this tale of resilience and joy
