Lewis & Clark College Gender Studies Symposium is hosting a presentation by my very good friend, Aaron Raz-Link, in which he (and Hilda Raz by video) will discuss their book, What Becomes You
-- one of the best trans memoirs I've ever read.
I haven't posted a full review of it yet because I'm awestruck enough to have trouble figuring out what to say.
Aaron's perspective is that of a scientist and a mystic -- (these are my words, not his; I am sure that he would simply tell you that he is himself) -- and he manages to say things about gender and transition that I had never thought could be borne by language. Perception is a world unto itself, and physical reality is yet another wild, huge world, and the iceberg of each world is mostly undersea.
If you're in the Portland area, go see his presentation. If you're anywhere at all, buy his book.
