Trans Love: An Anthology of Transgender and Non-Binary Voices - Edited by Freiya Benson
A ground-breaking anthology of writing on the topic of love, written by trans and nonbinary people who share their thoughts, feelings and experiences of love in all its guises.
The collection spans familial, romantic, spiritual and self-love as well as friendships and ally love, to provide a broad and honest understanding of how trans people navigate love and relationships, and what love means to them.
Reclaiming what love means to trans people, this book provokes conversations that are not reflected in what is presently written, moving the narrative around trans identities away from sensationalism. At once intimate and radical, and both humorous and poignant, this book is for anyone who has loved, who is in love, and who is looking for love.
'Trans Love makes for poignant, page-turning reading.' - DAZED
'Affirming and authentic, trans stories told by trans people.' - C harlie C raggs, author of To My Trans Sisters
'To consider a trans person's entitlement to love and be loved might feel like a radical step, for to go there is to acknowledge both the humanity of trans folk and, furthermore, wider society's capacity to discern and value it. If you think you could. never love a trans person or they have no right to love you then prepare to be shaken.' - Christine Burns MBE, Author and Transgender Activist
'From learning how to love yourself to falling for a soulmate, the concept of love can be daunting for a trans person. Trans Love gives a beautiful insight into the hearts and souls of what love means for trans and non-binary people today.' - Sarah Savage, author of Are You A Boy Or Are You A Girl and co-founder of Trans Pride Brighton
