b. binaohan has discount codes for anyone who can’t afford the $12 cover price:
- $4 off for any Indigenous and/or person of colour impacted by transmisogyny
- $3 off for all other qtipoc
- $2 off for all other oppressed people (here is the code: WNVY33SW).
you have to buy it at the createspace website instead of amazon
we absolutely will not be verifying anyone’s request for these. we just ask that people don’t abuse the $4 discount, since this is selling the book at cost, which means that b. won’t get any royalties.
once you have a code, feel free to share with your friends. we might periodically change the codes, but we’ll update everyone when this happens.
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.
I put together some poems (+60) into a pdf/ebook thing - it’s a collection of the things I’ve been writing over the past months. Obviously, this is a lot of rough, early writing and I’m not trying very hard to sell it (it’s free, but you can donate). It would be nice to see this work published somewhere, but it’s more important to me that people read it or at least have this available (I think it’s my way of settling these trans woc feelings about my lack of recorded history/literature and my own impermanence).
