Trans Bodies Trans Selves 2nd Edition

By Charlotte Robinson, April 17, 2022

The Trans Bodies, Trans Selves board has released the second edition of Trans Bodies, Trans Selves that is 50 pages longer than the first, & includes thousands of new contributors with an emphasis on uplifting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) trans voices. They’ve updated the original 25 chapters with new material from over 250 trans subject-matter experts, new art, brand new first-person narratives from a survey of over 2,000 trans voices with a foreword written by Kai Cheng Thom & an afterward written by Jennifer Finney Boylan. The second edition is more timely than ever as more than 220 anti-trans state laws have been proposed since 2021 limiting healthcare, public space & athletics access for millions of trans people. The new edition includes extensive new material on trans youth & adolescents. Kelsey Pacha, President, Trans Bodies, Trans Selves board stated, “This new edition of ‘Trans Bodies Trans Selves’ could not come at a better time. As we see the trans & non-binary communities under attack, from anti-trans legislation to the continuing epidemic of violence, particularly targeting trans people of color, this updated resource is more important than ever for parents, families, advocates, journalists & most importantly, trans & non-binary people. Trans Bodies Trans Selves is not just about information, it is about seeing ourselves, telling our stories and creating community.” The new edition of TBTS reflects the enormous increase of trans media representation, social awareness about gender expansive people & changes in legal protections. This information is vital now more than ever especially for physicians, therapists, teachers & parents of trans & gender expansive youth. For More Info…
