World Book Night 2022

A visionary, moving and one-of-a-kind anthology of writing on what it means to be trans today and every day.

From the daily bite of anxiety as you go to leave the house, to the freedom found swimming in the wild, through to moments of queer rage and joy and the peculiar timeslip of reliving your adolescence, the stories in this collection reveal the untold lived realities of trans people to help inform, inspire and unite. Spanning a range of topics such as gender dysphoria, transphobia, chest binding, gender reassignment surgery, coming out in later life, migration and love and relationships, these unique first-person accounts celebrate the beauty and diversity of being trans and will empower others on their journey.

Showcasing eight new exciting trans writers, this extraordinary collection is a powerful and heartfelt love-letter to the trans community.

Press Reviews

  • Christine Burns MBE, Author and Transgender Activist

    I'm utterly blown away by the sheer power of the eight contributions to this little anthology. These are such articulate and pithy accounts about transitioning today, whether binary or non-binary, and the authors have schooled me in ways that I didn't expect when I picked it up.
