New book in the works: Trans Bodies, Trans Selves

There is a new book in the works, modeled after the famous Our Bodies, Ourselves, called Trans Bodies, Trans Selves.

About the book

Trans Bodies, Trans Selves is a resource guide for transgender and other gender-variant people, covering health, legal issues, cultural and social questions, history, theory, and more. It is a place for transgender people, their partners and families, students, professors, guidance counselors, and others to look for up-to-date information on transgender life.

I’m excited to see the results of the book, as a genderqueer identified person, because there is very little information out there that is compiled into one big volume. It is a huge undertaking, but it’s sure to be a benefit to the folks in our community.
The book’s Editor, Dr. Laura Erickson-Schroth, participated last week in a question and answer feature with the New York Times about transgender issues. You can check it out here.
The book team is looking for folks to fill out a survey that will be used in the book, as well as interns and chapter authors. More info here.
