Abstract

In the opening of the anthology, We Want It All: An Anthology of Radical Trans Poetics, editors Andrea Abi-Karam and Kay Gabriel state that “as a collection of writing by trans people against capital and empire, this book attempts to piece together these multiple points of overlap between the subjective, interpersonal, and everyday modes of trans life, and the internalist horizons of the fights we are already engaged in” (2). This collection is firmly rooted in an anticapitalist and anti-oppressive praxis, and even includes some prominent trans trailblazers who are no longer with us, such as Sylvia Rivera, Lou Sullivan, and Leslie Feinberg.
