Hope and Visibility: Trans*(verse) II


Published on March 31, 2021

I’m so pleased to be able to share that a new book that I’ve contributed to has launched today! The second book in the TransVerse series, this collected work of poetry and verse features over 50 amazing transgender writers across four different continents.

From the book’s official description:

We had dysphoria. We had cyberbullies. We had transphobic attacks. We had discrimination, negative media coverage, and multi-year waiting lists for medical care – or, in some cases, no medical care at all.  Wasn’t there something else? Ah, yes – a global pandemic…  

But we’re back, celebrating our refusal to be erased… with an even bigger and more diverse anthology of poems, song lyrics and life stories by transgender and non-binary writers!

No Time for Silence: Words of Survival, Resilience, and Hope, the second anthology in the TransVerse series, brings together 55 amazing writers from four continents – Africa, Australasia, Europe and North America. We hope that in these pages you’ll find inspiration, whatever your gender; solidarity, if you’re trans and/or non-binary; and a deeper insight into the courage and creativity of our global TransVerse family. 

We’re in this together. We’ve got this. Stay Strong!

Ash Brockwell, Editor of the TransVerse series

Inside the book are some wonderful poems and stories, including a particularly amusing look at my own coming out story, and some not-before-published poems from my own repertoire.

You can grab the book on Kindle and – soon – on paperback over at Amazon, so please do check it out and consider supporting this fantastic endeavour!
