'Before I Step Outside [You Love Me]' - chapbook.
'Before I Step Outside [You Love me]' (2017) is Travis Alabanza's debut chapbook and collection of work, with a mixture of images, poetry, diary entries and essays relating to their experience as a trans person navigating public space, being outside, and on public transport. Every piece within the book is written whilst on a tube, a bus, walking, being harrassed, stared at, looked at and surviving. This collection of work is designed to be taken outside. To be read in public. To be shown in spaces. To be seen.
Since its release in 2017, the book has been shipped to over 21 countries receiving outstanding praise.
