Re: “A Perfect Night for Manifest Pussy: The Sudden, Tragic Poignancy of Shakina Nayfack's Trans Song Cycle

What should have been a thoughtful review of a show that gained added poignance after the unimaginable tragedy in Orlando veers uncomfortably close to being an embarrassing exercise in humblebragging. “Look at me,” the author implores us. “Look at all the wonderful things I do! Look at how much I care! Aren’t I amazing?” When you spend the entire first half of your review cataloging your good works, you can’t help but come across as a narcissistic tool, no matter how well-intentioned you may be. Many of us freely give our time, our toil, our sweat – and, yes, our blood – to worthy causes. But we’re not looking for applause or admiration. It’s surprising that a publication of The INDY’s stature would allow a writer to turn a review into an orgy of self-congratulations.
