Raquel Willis’ recently released memoir “The Risk It Takes to Bloom” delves into the intersecting challenges that she’s faced as a Black trans woman activist while embracing those identities full stop.
The author, a former executive editor of Out, The Advocate’s sibling publication, opened up about navigating a world still full of racism and transphobia.
“I’ve experienced misogyny, transphobia, and so much more,” Willis shared, shedding light on the intersecting struggles.
“The Risk It Takes to Bloom” also explores themes of isolation and the importance of community support, which are particularly significant for those marginalized within the LGBTQ+ spectrum. In her book, Willis’s story of growing up in Georgia includes poignant experiences like attending a family funeral during a crucial stage of her transition. This event illustrates the intricate balance of maintaining a personal identity while navigating familial expectations and societal norms, even while not fitting into either.
The noted writer also hosts a new podcast, “Afterlives: The Layleen Polanco Story,” inspired by her award-winning work on Out magazine’s Trans Obituaries Project. “Afterlives” honors the memory of Layleen Polanco, an Afro-Latina trans woman who died at Rikers Island, and the project examines the systemic failures leading up to her death. The podcast coincided with Trans Awareness Week, taking an empathetic approach to true crime by focusing on the impact of society on trans lives, particularly trans women of color.
