Spoken Word Episode 15: We Twinkle Like Gold: A Thousand Threads: Stories of Us

Jocelyn Bishop and Jenn hosted this week as they discussed the new Trans collection, We Twinkle Like Gold.

Alex Nichols, one of the editors was live in the studio.

Rose-gold heels. The boys that bully. The doctor’s office. A changeling. A name the boss won’t let you forget. A fingernail secretly painted with clear polish. The euphoric buzz of the razor…

From stories of struggle, change and transformation to alien tea parties and glittering she-gods, We Twinkle Like Gold is the collective expression of 16 trans and gender-diverse folk who met on Zoom in 2021 to write together. Written in Melbourne and throughout Australia, their explorations traverse fiction, autobiography, fantasy, poetry, illustration, songwriting, interview and collective storytelling.

‘We are gaining visibility; our rights are starting to gain recognition. We are starting to learn to be proud of who we are. This collection offers an opportunity to walk in our shoes… to be led to an understanding of the diversity of the human experience and different ways to be. (Sarah, author-participant)

We Twinkle Like Gold is the first project from A Thousand Threads: Stories of Us, an ongoing writing initiative creating spaces for trans and gender-diverse peer connection and collaboration.
