I thought I was unhappy as a man. Turns out I was just unhappy…


In Greek mythology it is told how Tiresias the blind seer disturbed a pair of mating snakes, striking them with his staff. The goddess Hera, angered by the seer’s act, transformed him into a woman. Like Tiresias, in 2016 writer and drag queen Miss Unity underwent his own metamorphosis, from a lonely, Dickens-loving grad student to the meth-smoking, hard-partying hurricane known as Mabel Frost. In searingly honest, darkly funny essays, Unity retraces his progress from man to woman and back to man. For anyone who’s ever had to kill their old self to become the person they were born to be.
