The Prince review; Abigail Thorn’s wonderful debut as playwright

Abigail Thorn is absolutely a friend of Trans Writes and has even contributed an essay on the idea of dysphoria which you can check out here. So there was no way we were not going to review her debut play; The Prince. Kestral Gaian writes:

Elliot Page and undeniable Trans Joy; The Umbrella Academy Season 3

The world is not kind to trans people right now. From news to opinion pieces to comedy specials, it can feel like we’re in our own form of an apocalypse. But we can learn from Elliot Page and from Viktor, and not let that stop us from finding our authenticity and those moments of joy.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3: Meet Viktor and spoiler-free review

Overall though I had a good time watching this season of The Umbrella Academy and I think if you liked previous seasons you will too. Though I do have to add that Netflix has come under fire for transphobia repeatedly across the last few years. The company has repeatedly paid millions to comedians who have gone on to make large swathes of their sets just anti-LGBTQIA+ and specifically anti-trans garbage, the latest being Ricky Gervais' SuperNature. Trans staff have even reportedly faced consequences for speaking out against Netflix for this and Netflix higher-ups have repeatedly defended the decision to platform transphobia in this way.
