I’m a Jewish anarchist queer who writes on the politics of gender, violence, and accountability.
In 5781/2021, my partner Joe Isaac and I co-founded די ראָזעווע פּאַווע or pink peacock: a queer, yiddish anarchist pay-what-you-can café and infoshop in Glasgow, Scotland.
My book, The A–Z of Gender and Sexuality (April 2019) is available for purchase now. If you’re too skint to afford a copy, drop me an email ; )
My professional background is in healthcare advocacy for trans and queer people. Between 2018–2020 I worked with NHS Scotland to improve the conditions for both LGBTQ+ staff and service users; and I’ve given many educational talks and workshops on marginalized identities; my expertise is in transness, queerness, jewishness, sex work, and consent.
In 2017, I founded a support group called Not Your Fault for men and non-binary people who have experienced sexual violence, which I co-ran between 2017–2020. Not Your Fault continues to have regular meetings in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and online.
My writing has been featured in the book Queer Privacy, several wonderful zines, and (less excitingly) The Guardian and Morning Star—here’s a full list of my publications. I give lectures at universities, GUM clinics, and sex parties, and I’ve appeared in films shown at BAFTA and BFI festivals, and in web television on youtube and Sky News.
At the London School of Economics I
bought earned an MSc (Hons) in International Relations Theory. My academic background is in gender theory and North Korean nuclear deterrence politics.
I’m bisexual, autistic, trans, and non-binary. I am from the US and live in Glasgow, Scotland. My pronouns are he/him.
Some things I really like: mutual aid, gender variance, ייִדיש אַנאַרכיזם (דאַלוי פאָליצײַ!), Star Trek TOS and TAS, plants, retro futurism, mixtapes, public transportation, playing Bach, vegan cooking, high ISO, and the internet.
