Julian Talamantez Brolaski uses language and xirs' own pronoun paradigm to come closer to words that best express xir identity; at one time utilizing "it" as xir pronoun and appreciating the leveling impact of recognizing a unity with all things. Seeking what would feel closer to "home" both conceptually and geographically, xe sought community in Santa Cruz, San Francisco, New Mexico and New York; pursuing poetry, Indigenous two-spirit communities, and country music along the way. (Summary by Kirsten Adorian.)
