New (and Newish) Memoirs by Transgender Authors to Discover

By NYPL Staff
November 9, 2023

These personal stories—often interwoven with politics and activism—by transgender authors speak to the universal desire to be known and understood, and to be accepted for your authentic self. They are stories of love and courage, of blazing trails and lighting the way for others, of defining yourself in the glare of the public eye, of growing up and growing into yourself. They are stories of transition, but more so of life.
