'CN Lester breaks down the myths and misconceptions about trans people and politics with clarity and calm. An important, timely book' JULIET JACQUES In this eye-opening book, CN Lester, academic and activist, takes us on a journey through some of the most pressing issues concerning the trans debate: from pronouns to Caitlyn Jenner; from feminist and LGBTQ activists, to the rise in referrals for gender variant children - all by way of insightful and moving passages about the author's own experience. Trans Like Me shows us how to strive for authenticity in a world which often seeks to limit us by way of labels. 'Lester makes the most complex of subjects easy to digest. I finished with more insight and knowledge than I ever expected' STYLIST 'CN Lester is a writer for our times - a moving, learned and essential voice at the razor edge of gender politics' LAURIE PENNY 'One of the year's most important books on transgender identity' GAY TIMES
