The piece: My print is a reflection on utopic spacemaking, the concepts of family and safety, processes of accountability (both personal and interpersonal), body transcension, loss of belonging, and processes of reconstruction. The text is a quote from Building an Abolitionist Trans and Queer Movement with Everything We’ve Got by Morgan Bassichis, Alexander Lee, Dean Spade published in the excellent compilation Captive Genders: Trans Embodiment and the Prison Industrial Complex by AK Press, with a response written by me. I encourage you to forget preciousness and to cut out and assemble the house.
