This is Ivan Coyote. A mainly estrogen based organism that identifies as genderless. For any of you who don’t know, they have written many books about their experiences living in Canada as a queer. I’m currently reading Missed Her in my English class, and have never found a book quite as real and informative, while using humor and personal experience to explain certain situations.
This video, is of Ivan reading their story about getting their haircut in Ottawa. In Missed Her, it’s called Hair Today. They find storytelling to be an important part of understanding written word, and Ivan conveys it in such a way that you understand more as they tell their stories.
For any of you who haven’t read Ivan, I would recommend it. Ivan has an amazing way with words and it’s almost always based off of personal experience.
