Feminsting Reads: Bodymap by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha

Lambda Literary Award-winning writer Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha’s Bodymap, published this summer by Mawenzi House, returns often to the word “home.” Home is a meeting of body and map,
tattooed on Piepzna-Samarasinha’s breastplate and charted throughout the work in sensory memories, corporeal trauma, physical pleasures.

Tobi Hill-Meyer’s new Patreon page funds “Doing it Online”

In a time when trans sexuality embodies the unspeakable, Tobi Hill-Meyer has been singing arias from the mountaintops. Her work in the fields of pornography and erotica has played a major role in shaping what has come to be known as “queer porn,” and in particular granting new and more widely open roles to trans women interested in sex work before a camera.

On queered masculinity and misogyny

I started wearing ties my senior year of college. My mother bought me a slim, silver Calvin Klein tie at Nordstrom Rack when she visited me over her spring break.

16-year-old queer Latina Jessie Hernandez killed by Denver police

Jessie Hernandez’ friends describe her as goofy, lovable, with an infectious smile. On Monday morning, the Denver police officers saw in Jessie — a Latina, queer-presenting young person — a threat. For this reason, Jessie is now dead.
