On June 12, in conjunction with the 2014 Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference, Leeway presented our Second Trans Literary Salon highlighting the work of emerging literary artists from a diversity of genres including poetry, fiction, memoir, and spoken word. The salon featured readings from Annie Mok (ACG ’13), DarkMatter, Imogen Binnie, J Mase III (ACG ’07), and KOKUMỌ.
Imogen Binnie writes the zines The Fact That It's Funny Doesn't Make It A Joke and Stereotype Threat. She also writes a monthly column for Maximum Rocknroll magazine, and her work has been featured in The Collection: Short Fiction from the Transgender Vanguard, as well as on prettyqueer.com, lambdaliterary.org and elsewhere. She writes about books at KeepYourBridgesBurning.com and her first novel, Nevada, was published in 2013. It is the recipient of a MOTHA Award and a finalist in the 26th Annual Lambda Literary Awards.
