I am OtherWise. … I am a survivor of the violence and terrorism of nonconsensual gender, but I am no longer divided against myself.

OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance
“OtherWise” was my (Chris’s) contribution to the historic 2001 cluster in The Other Side magazine. I was talking about being non-binary long before we had started talking about “non-binary,” but this was also long before I had started to find words for much of what OtherWise means to me today.
My/Chris’s chapter, “OtherWise,” will appear in OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance (forthcoming spring 2020) from OtherWise Engaged Publishing.
