C Bain

C. Bain is a gender liminal writer, performer, and artist. His work focuses on interstices of sex and violence, the queer body subjected to the extraction of knowledge. He started out in poetry slams in the late ’90s, then transitioned to experimental theater-making, and more recently makes sculptures and videos. His plays have been presented at NYC venues, including the Tank and Dixon Place. He apprenticed at Ugly Duckling Presse, and participated in the first Center for Book Arts creative publishing seminar. He has a social work degree from Hunter College and an art MFA from CalArts. A Lambda Literary fellow, his first book, Debridement, was a finalist for the Publishing Triangle Awards.
