Below are the items i’ve been fortunate to have published. Some of them are online; the titles of those pieces are linked. The others have either been taken down since publication or were never online in the first place.

Some of the terms i employ have changed over the years (e.g., i used to write “transman” or “transwoman,” whereas i now put spaces in the middle of those words). So keep that in mind if you’re looking at some of my older pieces.

Interested in anything here? Please drop me a line! All documents, except for those that are already online, are available in .pdf format. I’d love to get your feedback, particularly if you’re trans-identified or otherwise gender non-conforming yourself. Do you think i’m on target or way off base? I’m interested in any possible dialog.
