Favorite Quote

The category of trans can be an uncomfortable place to be, filled with the fears society has about disruption, fitting in, danger and change. It is also a place filled with unlooked for knowledge, new experiences, new perspectives, and unanticipated joy.

What do we mean when we use the word trans? For some, trans is a troubling word, which brings associations of social upheaval, the loss of tradition, and the loosening of familiar norms.

But gender is something which we are all forced to engage with, whether we realize it or not, and it is important to pay attention to the ways it shapes our minds and lives.

In this book, author, activist, and alternative singer-songwriter CN Lester takes us through many of the most common myths about trans people, from fear about changing rooms to panic about sex changes for children.

Trans Like Me uses Lester's own experiences to guide us through complex issues around gender with clarity and honesty.
