Excluded a finalist for Judy Grahn book award!

I got some exciting news this week: The Publishing Triangle announced that my book Excluded: Making Feminist and Queer Movements More Inclusive is a finalist for this year's Judy Grahn Award for Lesbian Nonfiction! (for the record, it is a bisexual woman and trans woman-inclusive award.)

Some of my readers may be interested to know that Jennifer Finney Boylan's new book about being a trans parent is also a finalist, so it's an honor to be in such prestigious company.

The winner will be announced at their awards ceremony on April 24th, which I will likely sadly miss given that it's on the other side of the country. But it's nice to know my book is up for consideration!

That's all for now... -j.


  1. Congrats. : )

    Like Whipping Girl, the book resonated with my own experience on several levels when it's come to people acknowledging my identity.

  2. Best wishes.
    Your writing rocks my soul. ♡


Feel free to leave a comment. Dissenting opinions are welcome, provided that they are respectful (i.e., non-flaming).

Unfortunately, my blog seems to be a magnet that attracts people who have misconceptions about, or who are fundamentally opposed to, trans folks, and who want to leave comments here about how I am "wrong" about gender and/or my own experiences & identity as a trans woman. Such comments will not be posted. If you want to spout anti-trans rhetoric, find another venue. If you are simply "confused" about trans people, then I recommend picking up a copy of my book Whipping Girl, because I debunk most misconceptions about trans folks there.

Due to recent online harassment I've experienced, all comments will be moderated from here forward, so there will be a delay before your comments are posted on this site.
