Marylyn Tan is a queer, female linguistics graduate, poet, and artist who has been performing spoken word since 2014. She is invested in building community, emancipating the marginalized and the alienated, endangered body. Her first volume of poetry, GAZE BACK (published by Ethos Books; finalist for the 2019 Lambda Literary Award), is the lesbo Singaporean trans-genre witch grimoire you never knew you needed. Marylyn has been published in various anthologies, including A Luxury We Must Afford, Inheritance, and ASINGBOL Anthology. She writes for your bewilderment.
