Rejecting the Rules of Gender and Conformity
Edited by Mattilda (she/her)
Nobody Passes is a collection of essays that confronts and challenges the very notion of belonging. By examining the perilous intersections of identity, categorization and community, contributors challenge societal mores and countercultural norms. From activism to academia, immigration to appropriation to cruising for sex, hip-hop to disability culture to trans communities, this anthology challenges standards of authenticity and destroys notions of acceptability.
“Smart, sassy, and long overdue, this collection of essays by Mattilda and hur badass posse of evil geniuses gleefully demolishes the smug propriety that lurks within most contemporary debates about gender and diversity. What a breath of fresh air!” Susan Stryker, transgender activist, historian and filmaker
