Alex Alvina Chamberland

is a trans woman authoress and performance artist. She has previously published two books in Swedish (Allt som är Mitt, 2015. Utelåst – Uppväxtnostalgi för freaks, 2018), and her debut English language novel "Love the World or Get Killed Trying" is being represented by Sophie Scard at United Agents in London. At the moment she is thinking a lot about how so many straight men are attracted to trans women, yet don't want to engage at all with trans women's struggles and problems and lived realities. If a trans woman is silent and simple she's sexy, but if she's open, emotional, and honest she's regarded as difficult, annoying, and too intense. She is also writing newspaper articles, teaching creative writing at the Technical University of Berlin, and slowly but surely working on her next novel.

é uma autora e performer trans. Ela já publicou dois livros em sueco (Allt som är Mitt, 2015. Utelåst - Uppväxtnostalgi för freaks, 2018), e seu romance de estréia em inglês "Love the World or Get Killed Trying" está sendo representado por Sophie Scard na United Agents em Londres. No momento está refletindo bastante sobre como tantos homens heterossexuais sentem-se atraídos por mulheres trans, mas não querem se envolver de forma alguma com suas lutas, problemas e realidades vividas. Se uma mulher trans permance em silêncio e se acata, ela é sexy, contudo se ela é aberta, emocional e honesta, é então considerada difícil, irritante e muito intensa. Alex Alvina também escreve artigos de jornal, ensina escrita criativa na Universidade Técnica de Berlim, e lentamente trabalhando em seu próximo romance.

ist eine trans* Autorin und Performerin. Sie hat bereits zwei Bücher auf Schwedisch veröffentlicht (Allt som är Mitt, 2015. Utelåst - Uppväxtnostalgi för freaks, 2018), und ihr englischsprachiger Debütroman "Love the World or Get Killed Trying Trying" wird von Sophie Scard bei United Agents in London vertreten. Im Moment denkt sie viel darüber nach, wie so viele Heteromänner sich von Transfrauen angezogen fühlen, sich aber überhaupt nicht mit den Kämpfen und Problemen und ihrer Lebenswirklichkeit beschäftigen wollen. Wenn eine transsexuelle Frau schweigsam und arglos bleibt, so ist sie sexy, dennoch falls sie offen, emotional und ehrlich ist, wird sie als schwierig, nervig und zu intensiv angesehen. Sie schreibt auch Zeitungsartikel, unterrichtet Kreatives Schreiben an der Technischen Universität Berlin und arbeitet langsam an ihrem nächsten Roman.
