Edited by Nate Lippens

Truant features writing and art that addresses queer self-exile: the stories of dropouts, throwaways and runaways; how withdrawal can be a matter of survival, refusal and renewal; what we will not do, allow or accept, personally, politically and artistically; and the power of absence as presence.
