Exploring the crossroads of gender and sexuality, Trans/Love: Radical Sex, Love & Relationships Beyond the Gender Binary offers unusually engaging narratives that create a raw and honest depiction of dating, sex, love, and relationships among members of the gender variant community.
FTM, MTF, thirdgender, genderqueer, and other non-traditional identities beyond the gender binary of traditional male and female are included in this often heartwarming, occasionally heartbreaking, always heartfelt groundbreaking anthology.
From monogamous love and marriage to anonymous sex and one-night hook-ups (and everything in between), these stories offer readers insight into the precarious emotional and practical mechanics of intimacy among gender-variant experiences.
Features contributions from award-winning authors including Julia Serano, Sassafras Lowery, and Max Valerio, alongside outstanding new writing by Tribe 8 guitarist and acclaimed film director Silas Howard, activist Joelle Ruby Ryan, filmmaker Ashley Altadonna, SisterSpit alum Cooper Lee Bombardier, and many other unique and talented voices.
"Having been around the trans and genderqueer scene for nearly two decades, I sometimes slip into thinking that I've seen and heard it all before--then something like Morty Diamond's latest anthology comes along to remind me that that's simply not true." -- Susan Stryker, professor of Gender Studies, University of Arizona
"This is where sex and gender collide, then ricochet like fragments of heart rending shrapnel. Rarely has a book about lust been full of so much love, conflict, and intelligence. If you think you already know what's in these stories, or you think you don't need to know, you're wrong."—Patrick Califa, author of Sex Changes: The Politics of Transgenderism
"This is a bold, brave, beautiful collection of work. The stories and interviews are windows into some of the most misunderstood and underepresented people in our community: trans and gender-variant folks and the people who love them. Diamond has collected the voices of a diverse group of writers, and their words inspire, challenge, and incite. This should be required reading for anyone interested in what love and relationships in the 21st century "really" look like." - Tristan Taormino, author and educator
