The Transgender Issue: An Argument for Justice
By Shon Faye
Why this book?
It’s great to hear the voices of the UK’s latest generation of trans activists, and Shon’s book – passionate, factual, well-researched – exemplifies the best of their work. Her compelling writing sets out the lived realities of trans life in the twenty-first century, from youth to old age: a clear, cold wind of reality, epitomising today’s urgent call for trans equality and dispelling media mythologizing. Shon reviews work, family, housing, healthcare, the prison system (in which any of us could be remanded while wholly innocent of any crime), the way the T relates to the rest of LGBTQ+ and the relationships between trans and feminist communities. This is a must-read for everyone interested in social justice.
