Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but we still adore a recent contributor with one of the biggest hearts: Colette Arrand.
Colette wrote a non-fiction piece, “.081 Magenemite” for last summer’s 6.2 issue, and she’s just published a new piece at AutoStraddle titled “My Trans Body as a State of Desire.” It’s an exploration of her “emotional cave” as she discovers new modes of experiencing sexuality during her transition. It’s exciting, unique, and (of course) honest.
We’d expect no less from Colette.
