Hi, I'm Rahne. The singer from Santa Librada and, formerly, The Degenerettes. I'm the author of Heretic to Housewife, an award-winning collection of essays published by Neon Hemlock Press. I'm a queer trans dyke multimedia artist from Baltimore, and I am currently pursuing an MFA in the Intermedia and Digital Art program at UMBC

The world's falling apart, and it's well past time to collect the stories I've been threatening to tell my whole life -- how I left behind a terrifying Mormon childhood to become a bawdy queer rock goddess.

I've been out in the world as a trans woman for a long time. I came out at the height of Reaganist AIDS hysteria into a gay community that didn't know what to do with me. I set off on my own to transition the same year Brandon Teena did. I am lucky to be here, I love my life, and I did not make it where I am on my own. This is a project about celebrating unlikely survival and the communities that make that possible.  

This project hinges on being able to really open my archive to collect and sort, to digitize and preserve and transcribe. This memoir project is much more than a book; it's got moving parts. There will be video art and raw footage. There will be music. There will be PDFs. There's a lot to sort through, and every hour I give to a paying client (as much as I love and appreciate my paying clients) is an hour I'm not giving to my memoir. At some point, I'm going to need to hire assistants. There is a lot of work to be done, and with your assistance, I can get there faster.
