NONE OF THE ABOVE Reflections on Life Beyond the Binary

by | Read by Travis Alabanza

Biography & Memoir • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

British performance artist and writer Travis Alabanza narrates their own expansive exploration of race, gender, and trans identity. Throughout this engaging production, they reject the expectation of a tidy response to the "When did you know . . . " question and the demands to perform according to narrowly defined gender parameters. Alabanza shares their experiences growing up Black and queer in England with a steadiness that is well paired with this reflective production. Their use of comments directed at them like "No, but real trans . . . " and "We don't do that around here . . . " becomes a springboard to further discussion about the unhealthy ways in which we bind ourselves to the social expectations of a gender binary. Alabanza's unhurried delivery imprints their memoir on listeners, planting seeds for ongoing discussion. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2024]
