Trans Bodies, Trans Selves

$ 44.95

This unprecedented resource brings together voices from across the transgender community to form a dazzlingly wide-ranging compendium of information on trans lives and experiences. Medical, legal, social, and cultural topics are given thorough overviews in 24 chapters, all written by transgender or genderqueer authors, while further insight, specificity, and perspectives from literally hundreds of contributors are provided in short sections interspersed throughout the book that range from personal stories to expert commentary to poetry. With chapters on subjects like "Race, Ethnicity, and Culture," "Immigration," "Disabilities and Deaf Culture," and "Aging," and beginning from the premise that "There is no one way to be transgender," Trans Bodies, Trans Selves demonstrates an admirable effort to represent the trans community as fully as possible, in all of its complexities and intersecting identities. Rich with practical information, suggestions for further resources, and knowledge in a multitude of areas to help us better understand ourselves and each other, this is a truly indispensable guide written by and for trans people and their allies.
