Twined Fragments is an ongoing collaboration between authors Miriam Suzanne & Allison Washington. Each fragment is sparked by the previous, as trans women of different generations pass their memories back and forth, reflecting on lives and transitions separated by a quarter-century.

We want those questions, and hope you will extend this conversation in the comments, on social media, or by contacting us directly.
