    1 thought on “Trans Voices: Becoming Who You Are

    1. I might need to stop requesting non-fiction books from NetGalley, because it seems like I haven’t been very successful with them. In this case I don’t know if I just didn’t read the description properly or didn’t understand it, but I thought Trans Voices: Becoming Who You Are was by a trans author and comprised longer-form interviews with transgender people. Instead, this inaccurately titled book is by a cisgender gay man who intersperses his medicalized, somewhat discomforting commentar [...]

    2. I received an eARC of this novel from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. The author of this book is a gay social worker, not a trans person, so I was hesitant, but I gave it a shot because he had worked & interviewed trans people, including those who identify as non-binary."I firmly believe that awareness and knowledge break down ignorance and bigotry and can create a world where everybody can get on with their business without interference or prejudice, thus allow [...]

    3. Trans Voices is a book with a bit of a strange pedigree, written as it is by a gay man who was ashamed of how little he knew about trans people. It is a book written both for those friends, families, and allies who are interested in better understanding trans issues, and for those of us questioning (or just exploring) our own gender identity.The book itself is very easy to read, balancing social and psychological theories with real trans experiences. In writing the book, Henry interviewed severa [...]

    4. i read this as an arc from netgalley! thanks netgalley :)i read this during trans awareness week, which was cool. this book focuses on the stories of trans people (including nonbinary people!) in the UK and ireland.i was really happy when reading the nonbinary section because i was unaware that one could identify both as cis and gender variant or gender non-conforming (like a butch lesbian). it made me feel a lot more secure and comfortable in my gender expression to see that in print. this book [...]

    5. More of a book for cis allies than for trans people I think, but still interesting. However it does use a lot of 'born in the wrong body' type language and has a chapter on cross-dressers, so yeah. (On the other hand though, chapter on non-binary people!)Also, it had a chapter on discrimination and hate crime, and didn't mention anything about what trans people of colour face, which is a pretty big oversight considering how many black trans women get murdered each year, and which makes me think [...]

    6. Thanks to net galley for providing me with a copy of this book, in exchange for a honest review.I am currently outlining a novel that features a transgender protagonist. When I saw this book, I thought it'd be perfect for me to get an idea about what it's like to be transgender. This book contained a lot of information about all aspects of being transgender. It was interesting and I really enjoyed reading the personal stories. It has also given me a lot to think about in regards to my novel.

    7. Informative for those of us in the LGBT community who want to understand a little more about transgender people, but don't really have enough contact with them to satisfy our curiosity. I don't mean curiosity about where they go to the bathroom or what genitalia they have, but their everyday lives and what it feels like to look at your body and not see the person you are inside. Having read this book I can understand better what that must feel like. That makes this an important book.

    8. Content warnings: bad science, transphobic rhetoricReview can be found here at Blow Pop's Book Reviews.

    9. Review: The book is a rich account, comprising of over 100 interviews with individuals who come forward with their various challenges and experiences they faced while makig the journey of transitioning - from male-to-female and female-to-male. From a range of topics lole hormone treatments, reassignment surgeries, sex and sexuality, emotional and mental health, legal issues, the book is know-it-all guidance into the world of transgenders for those who are ignorant, biased, phobics or are current [...]

    10. Written in a somewhat academic way, the author explains many “technical” aspects of transgender life, while including snippets of personal narrative from transgender and/or gender nonconforming people. I think the book was very useful for understanding terminology and common obstacles faced by the transgender community. It could have been more relatable with more in-depth storytelling, I think.

    11. This was a great explanation of all things trans. I really appreciated how comprehensive and straightforward it was. I liked that it included quotes from many different types of people. I think in the grand scheme this book was a little basic, but it is a great introduction to the subject for people who don't have a lot of knowledge. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to learn more about trans or non-binary identities.
