'LOVE LETTER for Shia'
by Jos Charles

I was always impressed by that motherfucker Dante’s hell, I mean, the sonofabitch names names.

I speak Shia Labeouf and the work collapses in on itself in concreteness.

I’ve been reading about the timelessness of art lately and wondering when the earth is gonna die and what composition means in the face of it.

Worldhood is a concept and it’s ending along with any hope of approach and I don’t know the difference between survival and living.

Woody Allen in that Fellini knock off says something about when survival is assumed that level of desire gets invested into increasingly abstract and discrete events like ‘falling in love’.

Woody Allen is a privileged ass piece of shit and he can rot in hell.

Hard to render what means ‘occasion.’ Harder still ‘event’ though many of today’s youngest and brightest have tried.

I am speaking something of deposits.

Things get left behind and their names dry to jerky in your wrinkling eyes.

Sure, I want you to learn to accept but mostly I want everything else to change.

I don’t know what it means to be lyric anymore.

But I’m trying, Shia, I’m really trying.

This is the event page for a trans 101 workshop happening at the end of April. It’ll cover all the basics- identities, pronouns, terminology, language, cissexism, binarism, transphobia, transmisogyny and cis privilege. The goal is to bring trans awareness and education to those who don’t have accessibility to it or aren’t sure where to start.

More information on the event page and expect updates via tumblr. If you have any questions, comments, concerns or want to get involved please get in contact with me here, facebook (Georgia Black), or email me: jojosworld93@me.com.

Please share and/or signal boost this !!!!

IM GOING TO THIS

An editor of THEM would be expected to read through submissions, involve themself in decisions regarding direction of the journal, copy editing, and to represent the journal as situations demand.

 

As a literary journal of trans* writers applicants must in some way exist in variation and resistance to the Western assigned-at-birth, gender-binary model, regardless of if they claim the word ‘trans*’ or not. THEM is especially interested in supporting the voices of people whose narratives are often marginalized within queer and trans* writing spaces, for example, femmes, people of color, and folks with disabilities, as editors and writers.

 

THEM is not for profit, thus the editorial position would be volunteer-based, but would include free copies of the journal and other relevant materials.

If interested in the editorial position, please send an email to themliterature@gmail.com, with subject “EDITOR APPLICATION”. 

THEM is excited to hear from you.

 

in Resistance,

Jos Charles
