Capturing the important social history of the trans and gender diverse community
On our last episode of season 2 we interview the Melbourne-based writer, performer and graphic novelist Fury, one of the stars of the smash-hit show Gender Euphoria.
Fury is the queer, non-binary author of the stunning graphic memoir “I Don’t Understand How Emotions Work” that weaves straight forward dialogue with emotive imagery to mimic the drifting and coming-together of the conscious and subconscious; thought and emotion. It interrogates the notion of selfhood, asking the question: if who we are is constructed through our memories, what does that say about the integrity of our identities?
You can buy a copy of “I Don’t Understand How Emotions Work” here.
Fury is also a prolific writer, whose work you can read on their website Fury Writes.
