Abstract

Since the mid 1990s there has been a proliferation of books by academics and practitioners about transgender lives (see, for example, Bornstein, 1994; Stryker & Whittle, 2006; Teich, 2012). Trans Bodies, Trans selves breaks new ground, however, by offering an accessible, comprehensive and also practical resource guide for trans people themselves. The book is modeled on the feminist health manual, ‘Our Bodies, Ourselves’, first published by the Boston Women’s Health Collective in the 1970s. This book was written by and for women and aimed to counter malestream knowledge about women’s health and empower women by sharing information and experience.
