The Advocate: There was a glitch at Target where the word
“transgender” was censored on your cover.
Cáel M. Keegan: I never expected my book to be covered in The Washington Post as an example of internet censorship! What was so ironic is that Target’s effort to produce a “safe” online shopping environment scrubbed words as innocuous as “transgender” from its site. It really got me thinking a lot about the layers of erasure that make trans art or even writing about that art difficult to produce and access.
