Recommendation: I enjoy the writings of Daniel M Lavery (previously Daniel Mallory Ortberg of The Toast). He writes fun but thought-provoking things about his white, queer, American, academic/writerly transmasculine experience.

He has a memoir out called "Something That May Shock and Discredit You", which I haven't read yet, as well as a blog. The blog has some "paid subscribers only" posts, but many posts are free. Sometime when I'm less socially anxious I may take Lavery up on his offer to share individual paid posts for free with people in financial hardship.

The blog:


Lavery is also the advice columnist "Dear Prudence" on, but tbh I haven't enjoyed those as much. Every other post is behind a paywall and I don't always agree with his advice. Still worth mentioning, though!
