I'm Nate, a 21 year old gay transgender man living in the Pacific Northwest. I left Goodreads for this website after they insisted that transphobia doesn't count as bigotry. (Yes, I'm very bitter.)


My main interest is LGBT literature, especially specifically transgender literature, especially specifically gay/M4M transgender man literature. I also love linguistics and translation studies, historical fiction and SFF, especially if it involves LGBT romance (though I'm very tired of tragic trans/gay romance, and LGBT work written by non-LGBT authors), and I love non-fiction about history, biology and animals, and mental health studies. I'm a novice knitter and have been into reading the history of fiber craft lately.
