We, the undersigned, do not support your lawsuit against Lisa Rabey and nina de jesus. As librarians and educators, we value open dialogue and believe the proper response to accusations of harassment is understanding and engagement. Instead, you have chosen to use legal action to silence future discussions about a critical issue in our profession and furthermore will likely prevent other victims of harassment from speaking out against their abusers.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS - Round 2
Trans_ : An Anthology of Trans People and the Internet
Submissions are sought for a new anthology on trans people and the Internet. The working title at this time is Trans_ : An Anthology of Trans People and the Internet.
Editors: Mitch Kellaway, nina malaya, Harlan Kellaway
Proposal Deadline: December 1st, 2014
Final Essay Deadline: April 1st, 2015
Trans_ is the first anthology to collect the voices and experiences of trans people speaking to how the Internet has impacted our lives and how we have impacted the Internet. We wish to capture a range of pieces from those who use, cannot use, work with, develop for, socialize on, and build community with the Internet.
What We’re Seeking in the 2nd Round of Submissions
We had a very successful and exciting first round of submissions. After reviewing them and making decisions, we are doing a second round with a greater focus on ensuring we have a diverse array of both topics and contributors.
In this round, we would like to specifically encourage trans women (esp. of colour), trans feminine people, and anyone else belonging to the group of people impacted by transmisogyny to contribute.
Additionally, we would love to receive more submissions from marginalized groups — people of colour (of any gender); sex workers; disabled, poor, rural, fat, elder, trans people; and more — in order to create an anthology as complex and expansive as the community itself.
Note: Submissions from all trans people will still be accepted for consideration; however, we’re keen to see and work with submissions coming from the groups named above.
One of our editors (nina) is doing this thing.
Maybe you should think about doing the thing with her?
Make Love to Rage the devastatingly femme book of poetry by Morgan Robyn Collado is finally available for download and purchase.
From the back of the book:
This collection of poetry is a cleansing and transformative journey that takes us from rage to love with a depth of emotion and beauty in words that is breathtaking. The first part, ‘Rage,’ communicates the rage and anger caused by injustice, in immediate and visceral ways. The transition into ‘Making’ has all the mess and beauty inherent in the seasons of autumn and spring. After the rage, after the making, we have ‘Love.’ And the sweetness, caring, and compassion of these poems is a soothing balm after the rage. Yet, it also underscores that deep love, more than anything, fuels rage over injustice.
You won’t regret buying this book of poetry!

Support biyuti publishing! Literally the _only_ twoc focused publishing house.
Hey! So after seeing how confusing people found her sort of ironic blurb for decolonizing trans/gender 101, b. binaohan has written a new one!
tired of reading yet another trans/gender 101 entirely centered around white people and their normative narratives? tired of feeling like you must be this tall to be trans enough to belong in the ~community~? tired of feeling like the white trans community is erasing your experiences?
having gender feels but not understanding how they fit into the current white hegemonic discourse on gender?
decolonizing trans/gender 101 is a short, accessible (and non-academic) critique of many of the fundamental concepts in white trans/gender theory and discourse. written for the indigenous and/or person of colour trying to understand how their gender is/has been impacted by whiteness and colonialism.
Also… short note: we’ve also redone the interior of the book ‘cause nina finally saw a paper copy and realized that she’d put the margin a little too close to the edge of the page. Sorry! She is still learning everything as b. steps away from managing the business.
