Shannon Ru Paul isn't transgender.

You're right, Brian, but he is something of a public icon, and he has some very interesting things to say about gender identity and expression.

Like the fact that he's transphobic?

That's fine. I just wish that people who aren't trans weren't on this list of trans writers.


message 5: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Several of the books on this list aren't memoirs or biographies. They should be deleted, yes?


message 6: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Yes. This list should be what it says it is.


message 7: by Rainbowheart (last edited Jun 20, 2014 02:10PM) (new)

Rainbowheart Shannon, I agree! With that in mind, I did some cleanup on this list.

I deleted the following novels....

The Danish Girl
Confessions of a Teenage Hermaphrodite

Question.... what about books that aren't about one particular person? I notice some books that are about trans people in general, but aren't focused on a single individual. An example would be Transparent by Cris Beam.

There are also books by transvestites and drag queens (RuPaul, Josh Kilmer-Purcell) who identify as male, but it sounds like the list creator intended this listopia to be inclusive of them, so I left them alone.

I agree that Ru Paul doesn't belong on this list. It's difficult enough to find memoirs by trans people without mixing in everyone with an "interesting opinion on gender."


message 9: by Chinook (new)

Chinook Does anyone know of a travel memoir by a transgender author? Aside from Jan Morris. Having trouble finding anything.
