Home » Sympathetic Little Monster

Through a combination of lyric, narrative, and fractured essay, Sympathetic Little Monster attempts to make a space and a shape for the little girl who haunts our cultural/personal narratives about blackness and transmasculinity. As a trans coming-of-age text, the work is intensely inward-focused, but it resists the imperative of linear autobiography. Instead, it uses the personal as a tool to explore what kind of thing a “self” is, its relation to trauma and objectification, and its capacity to be multiple.
