Gender Jawn Podcast: Trans Care with Hil Malatino

How the “bad feelings” of trans experience inform trans survival and flourishingIn this episode, the second on this year’s theme, Care for the Future, Gwendolyn Beetham and Tamir Williams speak with Hil Malatino about his books Trans Care and Side Affects: On Being Trans and Feeling Bad. Malatino discusses how his work on care draws from and expands upon the genealogy of feminist work on care ethics and why we should examine not only the positive, but also the negative affects of trans lives - from burnout, to fatigue, to numbness. Malatino also provides an account of the state of Trans Studies today, pointing to the continued marginalization of trans scholars and Trans Studies in the academy. Citing the recent - and nationwide - attacks on trans rights, the episode concludes with a call to provide extensive support for Trans Studies now.
