Dedicated to trans women everywhere, this inspirational collection of letters written by successful trans women shares the lessons they learnt on their journeys to womanhood, celebrating their achievements and empowering the next generation to become who they truly are.


 


Written by politicians, scientists, models, athletes, authors, actresses, and activists from around the world, these letters capture the diversity of the trans experience and offer advice from make-up and dating through to fighting dysphoria and transphobia.


 


By turns honest and heartfelt, funny and furious or beautiful and brave, these letters send a clear message of hope to their sisters: each of these women have gone through the struggles of transition and emerged the other side as accomplished, confident women; and if we made it sister, so can you!

A touching and inspiring anthology of letters edited by Craggs (founder of Nail Transphobia),this offering collects missives of advice for transgender women. Brief biographies precede each letter, allowing readers to get a sense of the background of the writer. Letters come in different formats: traditional letters, letters to the writer's self, poetry, single sentences, and more. Craggs gathers an astonishingly diverse cadre of contributors, who offer both practical and emotional advice. A full range of emotions are represented in the raw, allowing for celebration, anger, and beyond. The work is appropriate for reading straight through or for picking up at different points, delivering the experience of transgender women, nonbinary individuals, and more. Cisgender readers will get a sincere look into the lives of many trans individuals and glean excellent guidance for embarking on any personal journey, while trans readers will find a range of strengthening reflections. VERDICT A triumph in topics of gender and women's studies, this anthology is unlike anything available today and is a must-have for those seeking to understand the trans community on a myriad of levels.
