“I hope to become the universe.” These words announced the 2010 suicide of Seth Walsh, a Latinx, gender non-conforming youth. Sketching the quotidian brutality of their existence, Walsh’s manifesto, against the promise of modernity, offers a place to aggregate forms of trans life even more unlivable than death.
