trigger has been in creation since 2011. After many realizations, hiatuses, and triumphs with life and identity, my first collection of poems will be in available for purchase around the world. The stories here represent transition, from my native Baton Rouge, Louisiana to my current staples in Washington, DC, from a transient gender assignment to becoming the woman I always was. As trans women of color take more ownership in the production of narratives and truth-telling, I intend to release trigger into the canon, providing nuance, a different perspective, and for my own writing to serve as further encouragement for other Goddess Queen Sisters to build the strength and determination to write, paint, shout, sing, and display their own journeys.
trigger is a bold, intimate, and comfortable/uncomfortable quest, through my own eyes, in being Black, being queer, being trans, being a woman, and being non-binary in 21st century America, in what continues to be systemic and oppressive, but also adventurous and ecstatic.
