Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. The most prominent gay trans poet in America's debut collection is now available for wide distribution. For Joshua Jennifer Espinoza, simply surviving in a world that hates women is a feat, and loving and being loved an act of defiance. This painful & personal book, brimming with darkness and hope, artfully balances how difficult being alive can be�the feeling of everything, all at once, crumbling�but also why we all keep doing it. Equal parts radical, raw, and soft, in this second edition of I'M ALIVE. IT HURTS. I LOVE IT. (now with brand new poems) it is softness that saves us.
