This week, The New York Times reported that the Trump administration is considering “rolling back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law.”

This harrowing news is just another stark reminder of the importance of supporting trans writers and storytellers. In the writing, telling, and sharing of our stories, there is affirmation, validation, and inspiration. Our narratives signal to the wider public that our lives matter and that our genuine selves should be part of the cultural conversation.

Our stories are a weapon against erasure. They offer road maps to living and surviving. They are essential reflections of our expansive humanity.

Below are links from recent Lambda Literary Review articles spotlighting trans storytellers. Support these authors and support these books.
