Alok Vaid-Menon Tells Us What It’s Like To Be Femme In Public

“I hate it when people say that I’m brave,” says gender non-conforming poet Alok Vaid-Menon, whose new chapbook asks “what it could look like to celebrate transfemininity in public.”

 

Vaid-Menon’s work isn’t about asserting that trans people deserve rights. Rather, “Trans people are emotionally complex, confused, loving, hating, depressed, wonderful, explicit, boring.”

Femme in Public can be purchased via Alok Vaid-Menon’s site.
