Beginnings and thoughts of a Transgender Manifesto of Liberation
The work towards the liberation of gender has many different facets that require the committed soul to engage as a matter of justice. I think that to the extent possible as I experience my own liberation moving gender to a different space of discourse can be disconcerting yet rarely is liberation not disconcerting. My thoughts here go beyond notions that merely cause gender trouble to use Judith Butler's term. I am calling for the liberation of gender from the binary construction that it has been historically grounded in. I am calling for a radical movement towards a different imagination of human existence and interaction of the body, mind and soul.
