About The Name of This Site: 
The day I was setting up this WordPress, the super-talented Annie Mok told me one of my favorite bars in New York had changed its setup. I texted her a lot of caps and the phrase, “I hate everything,” to which she said, “Progress never stops for nostalgic transsexuals.”

Informal Bio:
I love Miriam Toews more than almost anything. I’m from Manitoba more than anywhere else, but I spent my adolescent/college years in Oregon and as an adult I’ve lived in New York and Ontario for many years. I’m a trans woman and my writing tends to center around that.  I’m a thoroughbred Menno but don’t speak any Plautdietsch (if you don’t get it, don’t worry about it). I’m one of those gross people who likes the smell of cigarette smoke and age-wise I’m about as Millennial as you get.
