One tram change, 11 years of life

The place I work at right now is rather fancy and caters mostly to the upper-class, including the super rich. Like the kind of people who – I kid you not – owns a different luxury sports car for each day of the week.

Gender in the soul

I was reading an interesting article on them.us the other day. It’s about the transmasculine body in horror fiction and what it reveals about society’s fears about transmasculine people. It delves particularly into Hereditary, my personal favourite horror movie and which I consider nothing less than a masterpiece. But the part that got me thinkingFortsätt läsa ”Gender in the soul”

Arthur Eddington on the mystical experience

A happy place

I’ve been waiting for this for a while! Gothenburg’s Maritime Museum and Aquarium has been closed for a few years for renovations and now it has opened again. This is one of my favourite museums and somewhere I like to go when I need to collect my thoughts. Here you can see various boat modelsFortsätt läsa ”A happy place”

Elliot Page will be releasing an autobiography in 2023!

I nearly jumped for joy when I saw this while scrolling on Insta yesterday: Considering the current culture war the right is waging on trans people, it is of great importance that we get to tell our stories. Elliot is making great use of his privilege and platform once again! This is the book I’llFortsätt läsa ”Elliot Page will be releasing an autobiography in 2023!”

Drawing inspiration from his Jewish faith, Eli proposes for the international queer community a way forward characterised by solidarity, intercommunal responsibility and radical empathy.
