Spider Teeth Wherein our Protagonist Flies to Thailand to Get a Brand New Cunt
94p! b&w, bound with ribbon, 5.5"x8.5"
Navidson's account of gender affirming surgery in Thailand begins with notes on language and individual narratives of queer experience- expanding the boundaries of what we talk about when we talk about trans*. From there, the huge zine memoir that is Spider Teeth emerges. Honest, angry and politicized, ST confronts trauma and body crisis, the injustices of capitalist/homophobic structures that make surgery painfully inaccessable for transpeople, the terror and excitement of transformation and the hard acts of recovery and connecting with new physicalities. Written with an amorphic continuity - emotions, politics, a complex and integrated feelings of identity are all bound together. Awesome zine, necessary read. -EF
