Are you a boy, or are you a girl?

Guest editor Helene Oakley discusses gender, sexuality and power – personal themes that feature heavily in her own story. They are huge themes, too. She says, « They are part of our collective experience, running on tapes and reels within each of us individually, socially and culturally. Together, they make a great storm of a theme. It’s why I’m terrified to write about them. »

Strangers don’t need to stay strangers for long and these small acts can make all the difference.”

News from the world of Transitionese

We hope to spark conversations on the many different ways words and language shape our collective culture. Language used by readers and writers, speakers and listeners, is something alive and ever changing: please join the conversation to share your stories of being lost (or found) in translation, help shape our definitions, and step up to lend a hand coordinating translation efforts!
