in julia eff’s own words:
WHATSTHEIRNAME is a bracing 72-page romp through even MORE of my gender issues!! You thought I had it all out after Every Thug Is A Lady? PFFFFFT. Clearly you underestimated the depth of my angst.
This one’s a look at my gender (or lack thereof) two years down the road…and lemme tell you, life ain’t always a barrel of kittens. Featuring theories from childhood, Laura Jane Grace, ruminations on adolescence and fandom and boys in eyeliner, shin-kicking, Real Dolls, a pronoun guide, and the death of my relationship, it’s emotionally heavy–probably one of the heaviest things I’ve written, but one of the most important–and guaranteed to make you feel that much better about yourself!
This zine is 72 pages, quarter-size (4.25″x5.5″), entirely handwritten, text-heavy & collaged the old-fashioned way, photocopied, and recommended by everyone from novelist Adam Gnade to the almighty LJG herself!
