My Birthday Card – 2014

Submitted by Claude Vallee, the photographer.

“This is the best birthday card ever. Blue box with shiny pink ribbon : that is me! Even the wishes (inside and outside) are genderless (and that is a feat in French!). Officially from my mom, chosen by my sister and mother. Birthday was a while ago and I can’t stop being happy about it! ”

Recommendation: What the Night Demands

Someone recommends…

Book cover of What the Night Demands

I love it because Miles Walser is a great poet. Miles wrote some very touching stuff about trans issues, and especially if you are FTM I bet you will love this, but no matter who you are you will love the writing of this cute as hell and intelligent writer.

You can find a nice blog of Miles, where there is a lot of poetry recommended…

Recommendation: You

CN recommends…

CN Lester — You
Anti-queerphobia music video from a genderqueer artist

I’m a UK trans/queer activist and artist, and my latest music video is a collaboration between friends and fellow activists to challenge the slurs we’ve been saddled with throughout our lives.

I wrote the song ‘You’ for my audiences as a thank you — so it made sense to make a video that would try to do the same thing. I was bullied badly all the way through school – biphobia, transphobia, and just in general – and I wanted to make something that addressed that head on. It’s a very simple concept — everyone in the video shows the viewer a word they’ve been called and hurt by, and then shows the camera a word that ACTUALLY describes them — but I think there’s something powerful in having to hold someone’s gaze as they tell you how others have tried — and failed — to dehumanise them.

More information on CN Lester’s work and background on Wikipedia.

Recommendation: Carrington

KC recommends…

It’s the unusual and true love story between writer Lytton Strachey, a gay man, and a gender-nonconforming woman, the artist Dora Carrington. When first meeting Carrington, Strachey mistakes her for a boy and asks “Who is this ravashing boy?” It’s a very touching movie that you won’t forget about any time soon.

Recommendation: Sex Is All Fluxed Up

Asrik recommends…

It’s a great article on gender roles. (The blog is cool too but mostly less relevant to genderfork.) Here’s my favorite part of the post:

You are [sic] not a Woman, and I am [sic] not a Man. You may move through the world woman-ing, and I may do manly things, and we may enrich these roles and express them in a healthy way, but at core our bodies move in a dazzling, thundering, dynamic storm of circulating desire for the other-than-us, with potentials and predispositions, but nothing hammered down or definite.

I believe healthy, lightly-held roles make this whirling chaos of yearning more navigable, but they do not replace it. I feel fine to have chosen my version of the role of “man”, but it does not eclipse that one can pick from an infinite array of gender roles. Truly one must pity a culture reduced to the poverty of choosing from “he, she, and it”. He, she, and it? Really? Wow.

Recommendation: R. Freymuth-Frazier

Anna Mandolin recommends…

Self-Portrait In Moonlight, 20” x 24”, oil on panel, 2007, by R. Freymuth-Frazier

R. Freymuth-Frazier is a highly trained figurative oil painter. Instead of painting pretty landscapes or portraits in a traditional manner she uses her skills to paint portraits of women from various perspectives. From the hyper-feminine to the androgynous and even intersexuality, it’s all been explored in her large body of work spanning over a decade. It’s brave and strong work and really worth seeing.

Note: some of the paintings contain (artful) nudity.

Recommendation: Where’s your trousers?

Donnie Collins recommends…

There’s an Irish/Scottish ballad called “Donald, Where’s Your Trousers?” about a young man who is questioned/heckled for wearing a kilt instead of trousers.

Well, I’m a transguy, and my name’s Donald, and I guess I just loved the fact that there was a song like this out there.

And we all love kilts here, so I thought I’d share!

Recommendation: Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme

Zena Sharman recommends…

Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme

The Genderfork community might like an anthology on butch and femme called Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme. (Full disclosure: I co-edited this project with my partner, Ivan E. Coyote). We’re really proud of the book. It’s a beautiful and diverse collection of 40+ femme and butch voices including MtF and FtM butches and femmes — like Amy Fox’s piece “Changed Sex. Grew Boobs. Started Wearing a Tie.”, Rae Spoon’s “Femme Cowboy”, Elizabeth Marston’s “Rogue Femininity”, and S. Bear Bergman’s “Brother Dog”.

Our aim in creating this anthology was, as Audre Lorde says, to “broaden the joining” — to make space for a continuation and expansion of the butch femme conversation, to reflect on what femme and butch can mean in today’s ever-shifting gender landscape.

There’s also an interesting tumblr, though it’s no longer active.
