Metal unshackled? Metal who is shaped by their will? Metal who is resilience? Of course we are! “… and trans people are from Mercury” is time travel and space trips using words and community as vessel. Through what has been and what will, past the stiff and the reactionary (yuck!), till tomorrows and utopias. “… and trans people are from Mercury” is a bitchy, scifi-political, dreamy spoken word-show by and with spoken word-artist and trans activist Yolanda Aurora Bohm Ramirez.
