The Appendix : Transmasculine Joy in a Transphobic Culture

Dundee Contemporary Arts



Part of 404 Ink's Inklings titles for 2021, this series includes thought-provoking titles in pocket-size.

In 2019, Liam Konemann began collating what he called The Appendix, a simple record of ongoing transphobia in the UK that he came across in day-to-day life: from the flippant comments of peers to calculated articles and reviews in newspapers. When the list began to take its toll on his mental health, he changed tack by asking different questions: how is beauty in transmasculinity found? And how is it maintained in a transphobic world?

About 404 Ink

404 Ink was founded by Heather McDaid and Laura Jones in 2016 with the view that publishing could be a little louder and a little more fun. Their goal is to support new and emerging writers’ careers, and they believe in quality over quantity. That is, not publishing to fill a schedule but publishing because that book truly needs to be read. 404 Ink authors and books have won awards including the Saltire Society First Book of the Year, Outstanding Literature Award at the Scottish Culture Awards, and are Scottish Book Trust New Writers Awardees.
