The ‘THEY/THEIRS’ issue – Archer Magazine #7 out in December!
By: Amy Middleton
“I don’t mind confusion about my gender, but I do resent cisgender people who make that confusion my problem.”
– Bani Amor
“At this point, the precise title is less important to me than the fact that I don’t fit into the binary.”
– Mariana Podesta-Diverio
In this groundbreaking edition of Archer Magazine, we curate stories from people who exist outside the gender binary. This includes people who go by ‘they’ instead of ‘he’ or ‘she’; people who identify as transgender, or gender non-conforming, or genderqueer; people who are passionate about language; people who are passionate about change.
“I am now part of a small but burgeoning group of sex workers who have had the experience of working as both men and women.”
– Devon Wipp
At this time in our history, these perspectives are crucial.
