German Book Prize 2022: Kim de l'Horizon: "It will be a boy. It will be a girl. That sounds like a curse to me"

Kim de l'Horizon won the German Book Prize for his debut novel "Blutbuch", and the following performance became famous: De l'Horizon sang spontaneously, then shaved his hair out of solidarity with Iranian women. The price also applies to them and everyone who is "oppressed because of their bodies," said de l'Horizon. Incidentally, the many repetitions of the name in this short text are no accident: Kim de l'Horizon is a non-binary person, so pronouns like "he", "she", "his" or "her" would simply not apply.

How did you feel looking in the mirror this morning, Kim de l'Horizon?
