Call for Submissions for a Radical Gender Variant (Trans, Intersex, Butch, Genderqueer) People of Color Book

An anthology by radical gender variant people of color about our experiences, struggles, organizing, anger and everything else.

There are so few accessible resources for gender variant (trans, intersex, butch, genderqueer) people of color (POC) to analyze and speak to our personal experiences and political work. I am looking for writings that challenge what's already out there I wanna know how we live in our communities, how we do political work, what we want our world to look like, how we change what gender and race looks like and, generally how we mess with people's notions and keep on fighting and surviving.

I am looking for essays, articles, interviews, rants, artwork (photography, drawings, graphics etc) by gender variant people of color to speak to some of these topics and begin to fill a void in resources, writings, and visibility. Let's link our stories, experiences, analyses, resources, activism, and confrontations. Submit!!!

Topics may include but definitely aren't limited to:
- Trans issues in POC organizing work (Anti-Prison work, Immigrants Rights, Hip Hop, Reclaiming Culture, Nationalism)
- Coming out
- The ways we experience racism, classism, abelism, sexism
- Gender, Sex & Sexuality, Relationships
- Gender Variance in Indigenous Communities
- Boundaries of Butch/Trans/Genderqueer identities
- The Politics of Transitioning
- Transphobia in queer communities
