This talk traces a few histories of trans masculine lives that appear and disappear across various archives. Some of these lives flicker in and out of visibility, some in and out of criminality and still more remain enigmatically illegible.
The talk argues for new visual methodologies for navigating archives of the lost, the found and the hidden.
