Trans Day of Rememberance 2022

**Content warning: mentions of suicide, murder, transphobia** Today is Trans Day of Rememberance. I thougth I’d write something, maybe a poem to honour the trans people who have lost their lives to murder or suicide. But I could find no words. When I go through the list of those whom the world has lost (thatFortsätt läsa ”Trans Day of Rememberance 2022”

Celebrating 6 years on testosterone

A couple days ago, I celebrated six years since the beginning of my physical transition. A lot of things have changed since 2016. Not only in terms of how my body has ever increasingly felt more like my own, but also in how the world is treating trans people. Cis society has long looked downFortsätt läsa ”Celebrating 6 years on testosterone”

When did popular billionaire J.K. Rowling ever get ”cancelled”?

You might have heard that J.K. Rowling recently published a new book, part of a crime series written under her pen name Robert Galbraith.

To be queer is to have no country

Election day is approaching and I have a terrible feeling. The far-right has become so normalised. They even have their ads on the trams and busses of the city. I can’t go anywhere without seeing the slogans and faces of politicians who want to take my rights away. And everywhere I overhear people having bigotedFortsätt läsa ”To be queer is to have no country”

The need for trans separatistic spiritual spaces

TW: transphobia, transmisogyny, castration I’ve been thinking a lot about the galli lately. Partly because I’ve read this book about the Mother Goddess Cybele and partly because I’ve had a few run-ins with transphobes in Pagan spaces. The galli, if you’ve never heard of them, were a class of priest/priestesses who worshipped Cybele. They wereFortsätt läsa ”The need for trans separatistic spiritual spaces”

Cold anger and inspiration

I’ve been experiencing a strange sort of anger lately. It’s not like the one I’ve had in the past. Anger before had always been like this red hot feeling pulsating beneath my skin. Like a bomb waiting to go off. Something I’ve spent most of my life trying not to feel. This new anger isFortsätt läsa ”Cold anger and inspiration”

This week, the city feels like ours too (almost)

The city feels more colourful and brighter and gayer than usual. There are LGBTQ+ workshops, lectures, plays and fun family activities happening everywhere in town. It feels like Gothenburg belongs to us queers too this week. But I also see people scoff and complain about the rainbow flags. And I and many people like meFortsätt läsa ”This week, the city feels like ours too (almost)”

Rainbow flags all over the city. Here at the Nordstan shopping mall. The local Pride festival is happening next week and it’s the first non-socially distanced one since the pandemic. So looking forward to it! In other news, I just finished the first chapter of the second novel of the series I’m writing. I’m aimingFortsätt läsa ”Celebration Time”
