Mother from Another... (Planet)

Mother from Another…” is a story from Jess Clarke’s grand opus, “Imagining Liberation.” This episode takes place in Mendocino CA in 1970.

Imagining Liberation follows a nonbinary Irish-Catholic kid through the permutations of their identity through the decades. The memoir kicks off with the narrator exploring gender-free names in a 1960s Catholic church service, fighting for peace in Vietnam, and then investigating androgyny and sexuality while living alternately in KKK Maryland with a 13 member “blended family” and with their mother’s various hippie collectives in Mendocino and Washington DC.
