Editorial Reviews

Review

In Trans Desire, Cárdenas offers us nothing less than a practical theory of desire that creates livable, affirmative worlds that resist the violence of capitalism and heteronormativity.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Kelly Dezart on August 8, 2010
Format: Paperback
Trans Desire/ Affective Cyborgs is a eloquent piece of queer literature. Micha Cardenas is a brillant author/ artist/ speaker. She fluidly articulates the place where theory, art, and politics intertwine and then make love to a beautiful transgender experience. This book is a must read for everyone interested in sex, art, and politics. Get ready to have your paradigm shifted.
