Tranimacies is a neologism that pushes and pulls together transness and animality so as to better germinate unruly, wily, perverse relationships between them, and their spawn. The composite term of tranimacies enmeshes several everyday and scholarly concepts: trans- gender, animal, animacy, intimacies. This special issue’s bundle of theoretical and artistic works insists on the beating heart of embodied experiences and political pulses at the core of these concepts.
