Memoir




"You can be me when I'm gone"

A Game of You
Neil Gaiman

Memoir has served as a defining genre for trannies, crips, and queers for time out of mind. While it carries on a tradition of casting minority lives as spectacles and wonders, it transforms this compulsion for narrative by casting stories in the voice of the marginalized. Yet a critically minded memoir has the ability to point from the story of a self towards the worlds that form it, so that we might better transform our collective experience.

These are stories from my life, reflecting on the encounters, corporealities, and loves that continue to transform my world. In these scenes and reflections, the friends and family mentioned are all real, while names have been shortened or changed in order to protect their privacy. Although many of these posts include personal analysis of social and imagined realities that structure the events described, aspects of these scenes are contain the seemingly arbitrary, unusual, and surprising accidents of life.

I've organized these posts into a series of topics, collecting moments that unfold non-linear stories about Trans Formations, Crip Corporealities and Queer Love.
