Some Kind of Resistance Tour, 2017

in riding sidesaddle*

On tour, I’ll be:

  • reading from my queer-as-fuck novel Riding SideSaddle*, while being a loud and vocal trans woman.
  • speaking about empathy in art and code and software.
  • chatting about queer identities, hate, politics, and intersectionality.
  • hugging people.

I’m not changing the world here, there’s more to do, but it feels like a nice way to get started, find my energy, and find my people.
