‘Being trans is about breathing, loving and being; and, in this story, it’s about finding small joys and knowing you are loved.’
I’m so grateful to be nominated for Non-Binary Activist/Advocate of the Year in the 2020 Trans Community Awards! I super appreciate folks acknowledging all the work I do, including editing enbylife.net, a journal for non-binary and gender diverse creatives; and facilitating an online workshop series called Let’s Talk Stories for Hunter Gender Alliance, which gave young transgender and gender diverse people the tools and skills to express themselves through writing.
For my full bio and to vote for me and/or other amazing trans and gender diverse folks, go to the Many Genders One Voice voting page.
An aside: the short story in Capricious, ‘Glitter and Leaf Litter’, is the piece I’m developing into a full length YA verse novel, thanks to my Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowship. I love these wonderful non-binary characters so so much 🌈
Have a read of my new poem about a cursed suburban rental in the latest Vulture Bones, a speculative fiction magazine for trans and enby voices.
I have a short story called ‘Glitter and Leaf Litter’ coming out in the Gender Diverse Pronouns issue of Capricious! SO HAPPY!
It’s a story of two enby teenagers who have sleepovers in an abandoned mansion and the ghostly friends they meet along the way. The story uses they/them pronouns and has: #friendshipgoals, cuddles and spooning, glitter, whimsy, and poetic descriptions. ❤
Also also also: I have a piece in this awesome issue! It’s called ‘Artistic expression beyond the binary’ – and it’s about non-binary creatives and artists.
Come to the launch to pick up your copy, have a drink and say hi to me! 🙂
Last night’s launch of #EnbyLife was a great success! Thank you to the contributors who made the zine possible, and to Vlada at Junky Comics for letting me host the event in her beautiful shop. 💜
Thanks to everyone’s generosity I was able to make a donation to Queensland AIDS Council/QuAC. Their mission is to enable LGBTQI+ people to improve their health and quality of life. If you want to make your own donation, visit their website.
If you couldn’t make it to the launch, there are still copies of #EnbyLife and some badges at Junky Comics. If you’re in Melbourne, I’ll also be sending copies of the zine to Sticky Institute and there’ll be some at the Junky pop up shop at Magic Johnston next month!
There’s also print and digital copies of the zine available at my Etsy shop.
