'Few books are as urgent as Shon Faye's debut ... Faye has hope for the future - and maybe so should we' Independent
'Unsparing, important and weighty ... a vitally needed antidote' Observer
'A moving and impressively comprehensive overview of trans life' Vogue
Trans people in Britain today have become a culture war 'issue'. Despite making up less than one per cent of the country's population, they are the subjects of a toxic and increasingly polarized 'debate' which generates reliable controversy for newspapers and talk shows. This media frenzy conceals a simple fact: that we are having the wrong conversation, a conversation in which trans people themselves are reduced to a talking point and denied a meaningful voice.
In this powerful new book, Shon Faye reclaims the idea of the 'transgender issue' to uncover the reality of what it means to be trans in a transphobic society. In doing so, she provides a compelling, wide-ranging analysis of trans lives from youth to old age, exploring work, family, housing, healthcare, the prison system and trans participation in the LGBTQ+ and feminist communities, in contemporary Britain and beyond.
The Transgender Issue is a landmark work that signals the beginning of a new, healthier conversation about trans life. It is a manifesto for change, and a call for justice and solidarity between all marginalized people and minorities. Trans liberation, as Faye sees it, goes to the root of what our society is and what it could be; it offers the possibility of a more just, free and joyful world for all of us.
'Fundamentally not a culture-war book. It operates outside the narrow coverage of trans people in the mainstream, and lays bare the inarguable facts' New Statesman
'Monumental and utterly convincing - crystal clear in its understanding of how the world should be' Judith Butler

À propos de l'auteur

This is a glaring error in any work, and particularly a work that aims to change society.
Added to which this book pushes the narrow agenda of only a few people in our society who want to replace biological sex, which they see as constructed, with gender identity which they believe is more useful.
This raises all kinds of ethical problems for women and same sex attracted people whose distinct reality is instantly rewritten.
I would so love to see a compassionate trans writer engage with that instead of pretend it isn’t so.
Wonderfully written, insightful, well researched and punchy - exactly what those who've been following Shon's career with interest have come to expect from her.
Trans people need real change. I've been banging on about most of this stuff for years but like most trans people have no reach. This book makes that case & hopefully will reach more people than most trans people could ever hope to reach.
