9 For Kirkland, ‘camp becomes indicative of an overdetermined identity formation’(127). By the time he engages in close reading of ‘camp’ formations (which he characterizes as belonging to one of three ‘forms’: dissenting camp, unionist camp, and nationalist camp), camp has become a ‘spectacular critique (a critique through spectacle) of the earnest values it wishes to promote’ (135). For Kirkland, camp is unintentional parody, parody through excess, parody through failed repetition à la Butler.

And in that, it has the potential to be inclusive and even, as Sontag implies, generous. The use of humour in response to the conflict in Northern Ireland is by no means a new approach; one can name many artists, such as Stewart Parker, Robert McLiam Wilson, and Paul Muldoon who, in different ways, have incorporated humour, albeit often of a dark sort, in their work. But the playful and good-humoured public parody that Pride’s camp performances enact of the actual signs and structures of the conflict – from identity to parading to flags – is both a novel approach and a political one, despite Sontag’s (in)famous assertion that ‘comedy is an experience of underinvolvement, of detachment’, and that the ‘camp sensibility’ is, ‘it goes without saying’, ‘disengaged, depoliticized – or at least apolitical’ (Sontag, 54).
