Beyond Magenta: Transgender Teens Speak Out by Susan Kuklin


I have difficulty finding the right words for a review. I’m Enby and queer. This book is so important. I feel so seen reading these teens’ stories. I think my life and my coming-out timeline would look a lot different if there had been any books like this in publication when I was a teenager. I think for those of us who never got real adolescence as our authentic selves, this is a much-needed source of healing. Can’t recommend this enough. I hope for cis folx reading this, it helps them at least acknowledge that they are not, in fact, the mythical norm. Only Trans and Enby folx talk about gender this way. It was heartwarming. I had tears rolling down my cheeks at several points. Worth a read for sure.
