's review

really liked it

The language Loren Cameron was using when this came out feels very, very dated right now, to the point that you'd probably call somebody out and have a confrontation if they used it in 2009. But, I mean, instead of just being kind of a faded photograph or whatever, that actually throws into relief what an intense time the nineties were to be a trans man: how few your role models were, how uncharted the life in front of you looked, how free and constrained you were, socially, at the same time.

Plus, there's no way to deny the defiant charge running through all these photos. Man. Recommended.
