Make my life easier

Huei-Tze, Josephine Ho

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Included in this section are a number of self-narratives uttered by a new generation of Taiwanese transgenders who have been forming/ negotiating their transgender identity and trajectories of trans life amidst the rigidity of the gender binary as well as the complexities of emerging gender/sexuality movements and identity politics in Taiwan. These self-narratives, spoken not as conciliatory attempts to win medical approval but as honest efforts to communicate with kindred spirits on friendly occasions, provide us with a rare opportunity to glimpse not only the inner struggles of varied transgender lives, but also the unspoken fluidity and multiplicities of identity and desire that gender/sexuality theories as well as movements have yet to grasp.
