Author and trans advocate Janet Mock bares it all for the latest issue of ELIXHER Magazine. The New York Times bestselling author of Redefining Realness makes a bold statement by posing nude for the print and digital publication. Along with three other Black queer women storytellers—activist Kim Crosby, Black Girl Dangerous‘ Mia McKenzie, and filmmaker Tiona McClodden—she sheds her layers, and talks reclaiming our bodies and narratives.
“I’ve always been interested in the idea of not only reclaiming our stories but also our bodies,” Mock shares in the upcoming issue. “Because of respectability politics we tend not to talk about what we do with our bodies, even within queer and trans communities.”
ELIXHER Magazine‘s “Body Issue” delves into identity, agency, and truth-telling. Also in this issue: One woman shares her struggle with surrogacy; readers reveal their feelings about body hair; and more.
