Fail So Hard: Success and Queerness by Raquel Rodriguez

The 20 magical slides I presented at AIGA Pecha Kucha Night in Pittsburgh in 2012. The slides don't exactly stand alone without my witty presentation, but I wanted to share anyway.

I had recently dropped out of a doctoral program, been rejected by a few potential employers, and had an overall feeling of uncertainty and lack of direction. Times were great. Then I read "The Queer Art of Failure" by J. Halberstam and my thinking about success and failure shifted a bit. This presentation ensued.
