Sinister Wisdom 128: Trans/Feminisms

Sinister Wisdom 128: Trans/Feminisms features writing and artwork by folks across the gender spectrum, including trans, nonbinary, genderqueer, genderfluid, two-spirit, gender-nonconforming, and intersex, celebrating writers and artists who trouble gender. What perspectives do trans lives bring to the field of feminist thought and practice? What does it mean to hold a conversation about being trans? What does it mean to be a part of that conversation? How do the crossroads of difference affect the conversation? Sinister Wisdom 128: Trans/Feminisms is dedicated to exploring and celebrating transness. Included work appeals to and from transness in a range of mediums: interdisciplinary, genre-bending poetry, fiction, transcribed interviews, manifestos, essays, historical and theoretical deep dives, comic strips, visual art, photography, oral histories, speeches, intergenerational conversations, and collaborations.
