Hello! I’m Kes Otter Lieffe.
I’m a working-class, trans woman, an author and grassroots community organiser based in Berlin.
News and updates
I write transfeminist speculative fiction novels centring marginalised experiences in powerful, deeply diverse resistance movements.
I’m a community organiser with aequa – a community for social equity working on mutual support, collective empowerment and collaborative action in Berlin, Germany
As a trans woman and an ecologist, I’ve 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 me hope.
