A powerful call to arms to empower cisgender people to be better allies, blending memoir, detailed research, and interviews.
The trans experience is all too often the subject of fierce debate in the media and online. While we're having more and more conversations about the trans experience, the stark reality is that hate crimes against the trans community have quadrupled over the past five years and that two in five trans young people have attempted suicide.
But behind the shock headlines and the distressing statistics, what does it really mean to be trans?
In this powerful, extensively researched, and deeply personal book, Kenny Ethan Jones, a trans activist and writer, offers an authentic and in-depth insight into the trans experience. From gender dysphoria to surgery, from being outed to finding love and considering parenthood, Kenny Ethan Jones draws on his own life and the stories of others from the trans and nonbinary communities to create discussion around the complexities and reality of the trans experiences in today's society. Dear Cis(Gender) People
is a powerful call to arms, equipping people of every gender with the tools to step forward as allies in order to bring about meaningful change. Through acting and speaking out, we can create a safer, fairer world for trans people--a world in which all of us can exist as our most authentic selves and celebrate who we are without fear.
