BLEEDING THUNDER   INAUGURAL ISSUE  WINTER 2020

The Bleeding Thunder project is borne out of our desire for complexity, community, and validation as trans & nonbinary menstruators. Menstruation can be an initiation, but queer, trans, & liminal people are often left out of mainstream menstruation and rites of passage narratives that adhere to static gender binaries.


After putting out a call for submissions to our communities, we were amazed by the flood of submissions that came pouring in. Trans and genderqueer people from around the world submitted poems and visual art expressing their experiences with menstruation, often sharing how validating it was to do so and moving us to tears with their stories. In this zine, we offer a platform for trans and genderqueer people to tell their stories about menstruation, and for these stories to be celebrated and honored.
