Abstract

abstract:

Archives are central to GLBTQ worldmaking. Recognizing the importance of archives, and building on increased interest in "archive stories," this essay shares archive stories of what I theorize as "straightening up." My conception of straightening up emerges from stories of reading and being read as a self-identified queer femme in the archives of romantic friendship. Ultimately, the essay underscores the inventive possibilities of archive stories, showing how stories of straightening up may prompt queer scholars to reflect critically on questions of archival embodiment and reading.
