When Lyle began medically transitioning, he knew to expect body hair. What he wasn’t prepared for were the three-inch fangs. The full moon blackouts. The rage. With werewolves making up a significant amount of the male population, he’s not alone. But how does a man like him fit into the pack?
Lycanthropy – a work-in-progress spoken-word show by Gray Crosbie, funded by Creative Scotland – explores the places where trans masculine experiences meet toxic masculinity and asks the question, what does it mean to be a man?
