THE RISK IT TAKES TO BLOOM On Life and Liberation

by | Read by Raquel Willis

Biography & Memoir • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Raquel Willis gives an impassioned and engaging performance of her memoir about her life in trans activism. After beginning with her childhood in Georgia, she reminisces about her various coming-out moments in high school and college--as gay, as a genderqueer drag performer, and as trans. She delves into her career as a journalist and activist in Georgia, California, and New York, sharing her evolving understanding of liberation work. Her voice is energetic and full of emotion. Her dedication to her work and her unwavering love for Black trans women come through loud and clear, especially when she's reading excerpts from speeches she's given at rallies and other events. This is a powerful, inspiring memoir from an activist who's just getting started. L.S. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
