Rev. Cathy Rion Starr
…packed with concrete tools and practices that hold the complexity of trans issues and invite curiosity and critical thinking with an open heart.
…the only one of its kind, with a heightened attention to the intersectionality of identities within the trans lived experience. …There is no other single resource of radical trans allyship that I would recommend to both therapists and clients.
Tobias K. Davis
…the most practical and accessible guide for trans inclusion I have ever read. …If you are interested in learning more about supporting trans people in your family, your workplace, your school, your community and the world, but you only have time to read one book, read this one.
Mushim Patricia Ikeda
We can’t know anyone’s gender identity simply by observing them. This fact alone challenges and revolutionizes all of the ways our binary-gender physical, social, mental and emotional spaces are constructed.
