Overview

Largely written before the current cultural visibility of trans lit, Lyric Sexology Vol. 1 is Salah's prescient contribution to a canon of self-determined literature that explores transness. In this case, the author sidesteps the "I" in the text and instead draws on archives--sexological, anthropological, psychological, among others--to demonstrate the shifting and shifty nature of our identities, affiliations, and narratives.

This 2017 edition is the first to be published in Canada and features four new poems and a new cover design by Kai Yun Ching and Wai-Yant Li.
