What's The T?

Publisher: Wren & Rook

The ‘T’ in question here is of course the T in LGBTQ+. And this important book aims to help readers explore and understand all things transgender. 

Starting with some of the big questions about identity (considering who we are and how we perceive ourselves), it then leads into trans history, gender politics and all possible aspects of trans life including coming out, relationships and gender confirmation surgery, as well as sharing a wealth of useful resources, help and advice. All the while, it uses examples from the author’s own experience to provide real context, confidence and reassurance. There’s even a transgender hall of fame. It’s quite simply an indispensable handbook and a comprehensive guide to all things trans and/or non-binary.

Juno Dawson’s inimitable style of writing is the icing on the cake, offering a contemporary voice and plenty of natural, unforced humour. She effortlessly combines authority and candour with a light touch and great accessibility. This is a book for anyone exploring their own identity, wanting to understand someone they know, or just increasing their learning about trans issues.

It’s a positive, honest and utterly essential read for everyone.
