Troubling the Line is the first-ever collection of poetry by trans and genderqueer writers. The book gathers works from 55 poets with varying aesthetics and backgrounds. In addition to generous samples of poetry by each trans writer, the book also includes “poetics statements” — reflections by each poet that provide context for their work covering a range of issues from identification and embodiment to language and activism.
Poets in Troubling the Line are Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhrán, Aimee Herman, Amir Rabiyah, Ari Banias, Ariel Goldberg, Bo Luengsuraswat, C. A.
