Otter is a working-class trans woman, an author and grassroots community organiser.
Otter is best known for her transfeminist speculative fiction novels centring marginalised experiences in powerful, deeply diverse resistance movements.
As a trans woman and an ecologist, Otter has written extensively about queerness in non-human nature. There’s something about knowing that there are lesbian lizards in the world and orgies of gay manatees and polyamorous oystercatchers and trans clownfish and bisexual red deer and masturbating baboons and kissing zebras that just gives her hope.
Otter has been a grassroots organiser for over two decades in Europe, the Middle-East and Latin America with a particular focus on the intersection of gender, queerness and environmental struggles. In 2019, she founded Trans Feminism International, organising to meet the material needs of trans women.
