For Wildness to Bloom (i) is a collection of essays on the experience of laser hair removal and castration. A series of tracts, it is a call-to-action to ground self-love and the sacred in our transitions. For Wildness to Bloom (i) provides new strategies in trans and women's liberation to dream the surgery and medicine we need.

This work has been made possible by a 2014 Leeway Foundation Art & Change Grant (link through year and grant foundation: http://www.leeway.org/grantees/voyager_acg_14).

Laila B. Hameen

Eyes the size of almonds, hands the size of a catcher's mitt, and shoes the size of canoes. The Dayton Ohio native discovered a love for writing at an early age. Some of her early memories were writing short stories to share with her second grade classmates and entertaining her mother on the way home from school by imitating her classmates.
She is the playwright, director and producer of Laid Off.. a one woman show based on her true events. Laila is also working on a book of narratives and poetry .

Megamax

Poetry that explores love, madness, and rewilding. Deeply personal, and often through a lens of history and politics.
