The diaries of Louis Graydon Sullivan
Barry Reay

5 A transgender story: the diaries of Louis Graydon Sullivan Although it may be an exaggeration to claim a ‘transgender turn’ in recent times, it is certainly true that what is now termed ‘trans*’ has come to feature prominently in contemporary culture and cultural history.1 The starting point for this history is contested. Some have maintained that convictions of gender dislocation have always been there: ‘one indisputable fact remains: transsexualism exists and has always existed’.2 For others, however, transsexuality was a late twentieth-century phenomenon

Introduction This chapter presents the first outcomes of my Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship Program (EU Horizon 2020, Grant Agreement 749218) 1 on queer- and trans-inclusive assisted reproduction involving studies of six European countries: Austria, Estonia, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the UK. In this research I examine the experiences, practices and possible improvements of preserving fertility and achieving reproduction of queer and transgender people in those six European Union (EU) states. This enables the comparison between more liberal

jokes, often justified as inoffensive banter, mostly coming from expat men’ ( Rainbow Network, 2016 : 3). Another reported ‘derogatory language’ used to describe a transgender colleague, including ‘mocking her passport photo, passport, and lack of clarity regarding her gender identity’ ( Rainbow Network, 2016 : 3). One interviewee commented that HEAT training does not reflect these realities, instead serving to exclude those with diverse SOGIESC: ‘The invisibility of

Five directors

"What does queer signify in twenty-first-century French film? How are lesbian, gay, and trans* characters represented on screen? The book responds to these questions via the cinema of five emblematic directors: Jacques Martineau, Olivier Ducastel, Alain Guiraudie, Sébastien Lifshitz, and Céline Sciamma. From gay sex at a nudist beach to lesbian love at a high school swimming pool, from gay road trips across France to transgender journeys through time, the films treated in this study raise a host of key questions about queerness in this century. From award-winners such as Stranger by the Lake and Portrait of a Lady on Fire to the lesser-known Family Tree and Open Bodies, these productions gesture toward an optimistic future for LGBTQ characters and for the world in which they live, love, and desire. Comprehensive in scope, Queer cinema in contemporary France traces the development of queerness across the directors’ careers, from their earliest, often unknown works to their later, major films. Whether they are white, beur, or black, whether they are lesbian, gay, trans*, or queer, the characters open up oppressive notions of hetero- and cisnormativity to something new, something unexpected, and something oriented towards the future.

Non-binary youth and affective (re)orientations to family
Nina Perger

Introduction In this chapter, I analyse the experiences of gender non-binary individuals using the web of affects and obligations experienced within the family. I seek to show how the ordinariness of family intimacy is transformed when it encounters transgender non-binary lives. Building on research on the everyday lives of gender and/or sexual

Surveillance and transgender bodies in a post-9/ 11 era of neoliberalism
Christine Quinan

“In the years following 9/11, the US Department of Homeland Security advanced new security policies as part of the war on terror, including increased scrutiny of identification documents at airports and national borders, that almost never explicitly mention transgender populations. But transgender

Transgender patients in early Swedish medical research
Julian Honkasalo

Introduction This chapter examines the paradoxical interplay of humanist and eugenic ideology underlying early Swedish clinical studies on ‘transvestite’ and ‘transsexual’ patients. 1 In this context I theorize bioprecarity 2 as being generated through a double-bind of inclusion and exclusion. Rather than examining scientific testing of gender as a past practice that belongs to the history of psychiatry, this chapter conceptualizes gender-determination tests of transgender patients as a biopolitical apparatus of power. 3 Although the invention of both the

Translatina world-making in The Salt Mines and Wildness

distribution of vulnerability with a consideration of the ambivalences of transgender representation? How can documentary filmmakers encounter marginalised people ethically and help share strategies for survival, kinship, and world-​making in the face of vulnerability? I  will explore these questions using two documentaries about translatina world-​making:  The Salt Mines (US, Susana Aikin and Carlos Aparicio, 1990) and Wildness (US, Wu Tsang, 2012). The Salt Mines, made on low-​ resolution video by cisgender Spanish-​ American documentary filmmakers Susana Aikin and Carlos

Transgender performance and the national imaginary in the Spanish cinema of the democratic era

elaborate some of the specific mechanisms of what might be termed ‘song work’ in these films and to re-examine the oft-made assertion that, in Spanish culture after Franco, transgender performative camp comes to stand for the Spanish Transition to democracy itself. 1 Inevitably, one approach will follow the other in that they both question the nature of the performative. Hence, this chapter seeks to place the figure and acousmêtre
