Metamorphosis AntholoZine


Metamorphosis is GJLP’s Poetry AntholoZine (an anthology and the components of a Zine combined) meant to encourage reflection and goal setting by examining where trans youth have come from and where they are headed! Through our own metamorphosis, we transform our pasts into a better future.

The inspiration for this AntholoZine came from the 2021 GSAN Staff Retreat as well as George Ella Lyon’s poem “Where I’m From.” As Lyon writes, “In such an atmosphere, how can we find our voices and make them heard? One avenue is through poetry, that heart-cry that comes to us in times of love and crisis.” This is our heart-cry, a heart-cry for the trans and gender nonconforming communities that shows our resilience and perseverance. No matter where we are from or what we experience, we are all headed for greatness.
