Varied Spirits Anthology 0

A project of Flying With Red Haircrow Productions

About

We live in societies designed to crush our bodies and spirits, that seek to compartmentalize and confine us in every way, especially into heteronormative roles and bodies although gender, sexuality, even intelligence are naturally on a spectrum. Variance, the state of being varied, is often seen as negative. Yet skills such as adaptability and variability helped our ancestors survive, and today are essential in gaining and maintaining balance, well-being and mindfulness. Being trans and/or also part of other minoritized or marginalized groups adds extras challenges for being accepted as who you are, of just living your life, of feeling safe in society, in your home, in your body. You are invited to submit poetry/prose, visual art and photography at no cost to you for a collection gathering the dignity, the sacrifice, and the beauty of our lives, loves and living. Of our spirits.

Important: Limited Demographic: Submissions are restricted to who identify as trans and Native/Indigenous persons who identify as two-spirit.
