#365DaysOfPleasure

Throughout 2019, RESURJ along with our accomplices and allies tried to challenge narrow connotations of pleasure through our #365DaysOfPleasure campaign where we celebrated all things big and small that bring us pleasure such as the pleasure of a shared silence, watching the sun rise and set, holding hands, marching for justice, the smell of soil after rain, waking up next to a loved one, a digital detox, sexting, a glass of wine, etc.

The series is an exploration of the tangible, intangible, commodified and uncommodified forms of pleasure, a nod to RESURJ’s “culture of activism that integrates pleasure and joy”, an acknowledgment of how much the same structures we are challenging are driving what gives us pleasure, and an attempt to broaden how we talk about pleasure, both within and outside of policy spaces.
