2015 has so far opened a door of opportunities. I received word that a piece I wrote on struggling with gender identity while on the road in South America made it into Brooklyn Boihood‘s forthcoming anthology Outside the XY: Queer Brown Masculinity. It will be available in print and some of it online by summer. I’m also taking part in an Outbounding.org‘s (liked reddit but for travel writing) discussion with some other dope folks of color on privilege, language, and the poc travel movement. Finally, I’ve been asked to join a Google Hangout on travel writing (more info forthcoming) which you could stream on All Digitocracy. But not all of the news has been good.
