update: new writings and talks!
 
Hello patrons! Just want to share some good news, plus links to new writings and talks.

The good news is that I finally have a completed manuscript of 99 Erics: a Kat Cataclysm  novel! It has been a little over two years in the making, and I appreciate all your support along the way. Now, all I have to do is find a home (aka, a publisher) for it - I'm gearing up for that now. In the meantime, you can read and/or listen to the following chapters from the book if you're interested: Eric Number One [Patreon], Poetry Slammed [YouTube], Posers [Vimeo], Shopping Carts Part One [Patreon], and Great Expectations [Patreon].

Second, as I discussed in my Patreon Overview page , your support makes it easier for me to make my writings (especially those related to activism) free to the general public. Some of the activism that I am most proud of is challenging psychological theories and diagnoses that needlessly pathologize trans people and other gender/sexual minorities. I have a whole webpage  dedicated to these critiques, and Part 3 of my latest book Outspoken: A Decade of Transgender Activism and Trans Feminism  chronicles this work, especially with regards to the DSM-5. To make this work more accessible to people who may find it useful, I just uploaded three of those chapters to Academia.edu :

Psychology, Sexualization, and Trans-Invalidations 

Reconceptualizing “Autogynephilia” as Female/Feminine Embodiment Fantasies 

Trans People Are Still “Disordered” in the DSM-5 

You can click on those links to access those chapters - you will need to join/sign up for Academia.edu to download them, but it's free, and you don't need to be an academic to do it. As a special thank you to my Patreon supporters, if you don't want to join Academia.edu but want to read these papers, if you contact me , I'd be happy to email those PDFs to you (provided that you're a Patreon supporter).

Finally, I've been working on a new talk called “Sexuality, Sexualization, and Self-Examining Desire” - the abstract for this talk can be found in the image in the top of this post. It is a combination of a talk I've given before called “Rethinking Sexualization” and a chapter from my second book Excluded  called “Self-Examining Desire and Embracing Ambivalence.” I will be giving this talk as a keynote for the CREGS 15th Annual Summer Institute on Sexuality  in San Francisco on June 2, 2017. (I believe there may be limited tickets available; check the link for more details). I have recently added this talk to my booking page  - so if you're associated with a college or conference with the means to bring me out, that page will tell you everything you need to know, plus it lists other talks I routinely give as well.
