The theme for Orlando Issue 03 is ‘beyond the body’. How do we transform ourselves, lose ourselves, or how are we kept back, limited, or marginalised: both because of and in spite of our bodies? How do we endure, how do we escape? The magazine proposes a line of questioning about limits and possibilities, of restriction and release, enquiring through what means—or, indeed, by any means necessary—we might be able to move beyond our bodies. There are no certain answers, no concrete resolutions. By expanding on ideas of corporeality and embodiment, the writers, artists, and poets in the issue explore the divergent and manifold modes we might employ in order to come outside of ourselves, to become not bodies, but something else.
