I just received the latest issue of Trigger93, which contains my essay “Marks: Uniting Spirit and Flesh”.
The theme of this issue is “Flesh”, and my piece is a personal essay on spiritual tattoos. Though the ways this theme has been interpreted are as varied as they are powerful, from the interview with Anna Blume on ACT UP’s AIDS activism in the 90s to field notes on crucifixion in the Philippines from Christina Verano Carter – complete with striking photographs, to editor Ayesha Adamo’s piece on method acting, and the path she took to really get inside her character.
It’s a great issue, and I’ve only touched on some of the content. It’s well worth checking out.
