A discussion of two very different works with deeply shared concerns around issues of queer and trans identities and justice.

In The Life and Death of Latisha King, Gayle Salamon asks what the killing of transgender teen Latisha King can teach us about the violence of misreading gender identity as sexual identity.  In Jordy Rosenberg‘s Confessions of the Fox, at once a soaring love story, a puzzling mystery, an electrifying tale of adventure and suspense, and an unabashed celebration of sex and sexuality, a fictional scholar named Dr. Voth discovers a long-lost manuscript — a gender-defying exposé of the adventures of two of the 18th-century’s most notorious prison break artists and petty thieves.
