Clay Cane

About The Author

Clay Cane grew up in Washington State and West Philadelphia. Separately raised by a white mother and a black father, he existed at society's complex intersections. From enduring spiritual violence in the African-American church, to learning unique lessons from transgender sex workers, to living in the double consciousness of blackness and gayness. Each essay combines personal stories with both researched and individual social analysis, using his narrative to highlight the most sidelined of communities. Cane's tender writing gives voice to the voiceless, he tells the stories that haven't been told by traveling beyond the lens of race and sexuality. Live Through This is the new American story.
