“What pronoun do you use?
The question is asked so brightly, so innocently, that I feel dis-orientated. It’s 2021, and I am a new member of the Women’s Circus, a Footcray feminist institution. I applied to join, dry-mouthed with anxiety, and have been immediately accepted into a community of cis women, trans men and serene androgynes who will accept ‘They, Them, He or She’. It’s not a cisterhood, but it’s very much a sisterhood.”
– An excerpt from Memento Moratorium by Women’s Circus Member Jack Nicholls, published in Nothing to Hide: Voices of Trans and Gender Diverse Australians (2022).
