Jules Joanne Gleeson

Jules Joanne Gleeson is a writer, comedian, and historian. She is coeditor, with Elle O’Rourke, of Transgender Marxism. She has published essays in outlets including Viewpoint MagazineInvert Journal, and VICE, and performed internationally at a wide range of communist and queer cultural events.

Theorist Hil Malatino offers a compelling account of the persistent bad feelings with which trans people often struggle—but it comes with fashionable academic hang-ups that need to be reconsidered.
