Book cover: Resilience

Ask: Building Consent Culture – 2017
From Publisher, On Gumroad, On Amazon

I’m proud to be a part of this collection of poetry and prose from over 30 trans women and other male assigned transgender writers. My contribution is a full on rant at my best form. Decrying stalking and online harassment of trans women, I tear apart the petty excuses and examine the hypocrisy and professed motivation anti-trans bigots put forward to justify wildly inappropriate behavior. This is been one of my favorite pieces to perform at live readings, and always gets a strong crowd reaction.

Ask: Building Consent Culture – 2017
From PublisherOn GoodreadsOn Amazon

This anthology builds out what it means to engage with consent in all aspects of life. My contribution is an essay exploring how rules addressing sexual harassment apply – or don’t – in certain kinds of jobs. When you can’t rely on the standard rules about sexual harassment because your job involves different standards and expectations, how do we create new rules that acknowledge that sexual harassment can still exist but are not inherent to the work.

Book Cover: Super Power Baby Shower

Super Power Baby Shower – 2017
From PublisherOn Goodreads

My second children’s book, co-written with my partner Fay Onyx. A trio of super heroes tell the story of when they were about to become co-parents to their young child. An extensive menagerie of interesting characters – including favorites like Granny Awesome – join together for a baby shower that quickly becomes a mission to help an indigenous run wolf sanctuary track down their lost wolves.

A Princess of Great Daring – 2015
From Publisher, On Goodreads

My first children’s book hearkens back to the feminist children’s books I grew up on.  Too often I see trans focused children’s books with the powerful but simple message “it’s okay to be trans” or even just “it’s okay to wear a dress.” In my story, our young trans girl decides to be not just a princess, but one of great daring who can run and climb trees while keeping up with each of her friends as they focus on strength, building friendship, and sharpening their cunning. And of course, there’s a dragon and adventure and all that.

Trans Bodies, Trans Selves – 2014
From Publisher, On GoodreadsOn Amazon

This massive book is a comprehensive resource guide for the trans community. With experts from different areas each taking on a chapter, I was excited to co-write the sexuality chapter with my colleague Dean Scarborough. With other chapters on family, health and medical care, law, and much more.

Beyond The Binary: Genderqueer and Sexually Fluid Speculative Fiction – 2012
On GoodreadsOn Amazon

An early speculative fiction anthology looking at a wide range of stories involving, queer, trans, and non-binary characters.

And Baby Makes More: Known Donors, Queer Parents, and Our Unexpected Families – 2009
On GoodreadsOn Amazon

Addressing my experience growing up with a known sperm donor who was occasionally a part of my life, my contribution to this anthology addresses most of the questions I’ve been asked about that experience throughout my whole life, as well as the complicated aspects of my decision to become a sperm donor as a trans woman.

Who’s Your Daddy?: And Other Writings on Queer Parenting – 2009
On GoodreadsOn Amazon

My contribution to this anthology is an essay on trans-racial parenting informed from my experience of growing up with white parents who used a PoC donor. Bringing in a lot of other thoughts and perspectives around trans-racial adoption, this is one of my more academic essays I’ve ever had published.

Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around The World – 2005
On GoodreadsOn Amazon

The first print book I was published in. It was a great experience to be included in something like this. In the decade or more it’s been since here, my views on sexual identity have shifted a bit, but what I wrote for this anthology is definitely a major part of how I’ve thought of and approached LGBTQ community throughout much of my activism.
