About the author - Katja Zeitler


Since her youth, Katja Zeitler has tried to access to her environment through poetry. 


Born Armin Zeitler in Stuttgart in 1962, the author confessed her transsexuality in 2006. The documentary film "Lichtvögel" was made at the same time. In it, the path to her new life as a trans woman is described.

Katja Zeitler processes her transsexuality in some of her poems. A not inconsiderable amount of space is taken up by questions of life and socially critical themes. Some poems were translated into Romanian with the intention of giving her current impressions of life due space. 


Her way of expression is compressed and pointed. The reader is often led to the bizarre and dark side of life.
