"Kate Doyle Griffiths discusses their politicization as a socialist, bringing an anthropological lens to their political, personal and sexual life. Griffiths reflects on growing up in Housten, Texas in desegregated schools, the peculiarity of their step family arrangements, their activism at New York University and Teamsters for a Democratic Union (TDU), and later work with the socialist organization Solidarity. They also discuss their three years in South Africa, becoming a parent, and non-binary gender identity. Griffiths reflects on the tension, interrelationship and parallels between being queer and trans with being a socialist radical, and the rapid shifts in both in recent years with the renewal of class struggle and the emergence of an explicitly trans communist politics."
