Gender Explorers: Our Stories of Growing Up TRANS and Changing the World (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 days.


'I believe that children who are questioning and exploring their gender are the gender bosses that we all so desperately need. I believe that they are our future.'

In this life-affirming, heartening and refreshing collection of interviews, young trans people offer valuable insight and advice into what has helped them to flourish and feel happy in their experience of growing up trans.

Speaking openly and candidly about their gender, their experiences of coming out, their aspirations, and their fears - accompanied by interviews and support from their parents and carers - this book is beautiful proof of the potential for trans children to live rich and fulfilling lives when given the support and love they need.

With their trademark candour and empathy, Juno Roche gives voice to a generation of gender explorers who are making gender work for them, and in the process, reveals a kinder, more accepting world, that we should all be fighting for.

Customer Reviews

I bought this book after a friend recommended it. Despite being told how incredible it was, I wasn't quite prepared for how touching the children's interviews would be. I was in tears just 3 pages into the very first interview. Juno has done such a beautiful job of collecting the words and experiences of trans and gender questioning children/young people and their parents. And their own personal story just adds to the message of how important is to listen to children when they summon up the courage to be honest about how they feel. If only all parents of trans/questioning children had read this before that first conversation, we'd have much healthier and happier children.
