In this fierce and fearless arrangement of poems, Someone Else’s Sex, Robin Sinclair writes toward queer and trans liberation with clarity, focus, and precision. It is a book about living and surviving as a damaged trans person in a damaged world, shedding light on the ways that “the closet” of queerness harms everyone, regardless of their gender or sexuality. Although the book navigates difficult themes and questions surrounding sex, the commodification of queer history, and bigotry, it nonetheless insists on love and healing, on pleasure and companionship, and a liberated world for all.
