An inspiring collection of essays by transgender and gender nonbinary experts and celebrities featuring personal experiences, vulnerability, guidance, and loving encouragement for those trans during times of heightened interpersonal and political transphobia.Surviving Transphobia is an inspiring collection of essays by transgender and nonbinary experts and celebrities. We tell you our histories, reveal our vulnerabilities, share our strategies to remain determined in bleak times, and offer loving support as you brave agony and seek joy.

The transgender and gender nonbinary community is forever under siege. Institutional transphobia is enacted by those who would return us to the shadows, the closets, or worse.

Surviving Transphobia is an anthology by transgender and gender nonbinary celebrities and experts on endurance during times of severe hostility. We share the moments when we were vulnerable, were bullied, had needs dismissed, or were discriminated against, revealing our determination and how we have (sometimes) managed to thrive. We offer loving support as you brave agony and seek joy. We also speak to our allies.

We are activists, actors, athletes, authors, lawyers, doctors, nurses, therapists, sex workers, clergy, diplomats, and military veterans. We are of many ethnicities. We vary socioeconomically, educationally, and geographically. Some are neurodivergent. Several are disabled or have chronic illnesses. A few are HIV+. A small number were born elsewhere.
