Trans Power by Juno Roche
Radical and emotionally raw, this book pushes the boundaries of trans representation by redefining 'trans' as an identity with its own power and strength, that goes beyond the gender binary. Features intimate conversations with leading figures in the trans community, such as Kate Bornstein, Travis Alabanza, Josephine Jones and Glamrou.
'An inspiring, empowering book that is very real and staggeringly visionary. - Attitude
'In Trans Power, Juno Roche shows us the space we already have to be ourselves. Juno Roche's trans superpower is generosity - from the very first pages, I felt a deep sense of kinship, of being welcomed into an intimate conversation about what it can mean to be trans. Trans Power is a respite, a compendium of maps to the new place, a portal for seekers and makers of liberation.'
- Andrea Lawlor, author of Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl
'Juno's writing is brilliantly personal and honest and always funny. Here, as usual in her work, the thought and theory is led by feeling and is so much more powerful for it. Her interviewees are among the most important trans and nonbinary people in the world today. Trans power is not to be missed!'
- Amelia Abraham, author of Queer Intentions: A (Personal) Journey Through LGBTQ+ Culture
'In the beginning trans people described themselves in the terms coined by outside observers. The result was so often a fixed narrative about the quest to assimilate. In Juno's writing it feels as though trans has pupated and emerged, vibrant, beautiful in all our stunning diversity.'
- Christine Burns MBE, author and retired trans equality advocate
'Trans Power really captures the diversity of the trans experience- essential reading for people who want to gain a better understanding of trans people or for trans people trying to better understand themselves.'
- Charlie Craggs, activist and author of To My Trans Sisters
