As a transgender writer, my work is interlaced with the theme of a disconnect from yourself. It’s never explicitly mentioned, but my characters navigate the world similar to how I do: feeling as if they are an outcast, disconnected from society/personhood, and feeling like you’re never truly ‘seen’. My work has grown to include more positive themes, such as found family and connections among those like you.
