What is transgress? A semi-monthly digital magazine (for lack of a better word) featuring articles, reviews and original creative works of transgressive art.

What is transgressive art?

For our purposes, it’s literature meets heavy metal in the form of Thrash Fiction: 1,000 words, no mercy. It’s a pink zebra-penned advice column. It’s personal essays, independent journalism, poems, shorts, photography and loud music.

Think Chuck Palahniuk, GG Allin, “Lolita.”

John Waters, New French Extremity, “A Clockwork Orange.”

J.G. Ballard, Bukowski, Ryu Murakami, Irvine Welsh.

In general, works of art that explore social and psychological dissociation, emotional disquiet and mental disturbances. For a more detailed definition, try these primers:
