Reviews

"A comprehensive guide for transgender teens. Without access to resources, growing up as a transgender person can feel isolating. However, the authors emphasize that transgender people exist as ‘part of a strong, important global history'… While the guide covers a broad range of topics, a central theme unites them: Transgender people of all identities have their own valuable narratives to share that are deserving of respect. Honest, inclusive, and essential." –Kirkus Reviews

"Gentle and affirming from start to finish, the book addresses complicated and sensitive topics in reassuring language. It neither sugarcoats nor exaggerates the difficulties of being transgender in today's world…. For transgender and gender-nonconforming young adults seeking guidance as they navigate in the world, Trans is a clear and welcoming text." –Foreword Reviews
