A personal and culture-driven exploration of the most pressing questions facing the transgender community today, from a leading activist, musician, and academic. In Trans Like Me, CN Lester takes readers on a measured, thoughtful, intelligent yet approachable tour through the most important and high-profile narratives around the trans community, turning them inside out and examining where we really are in terms of progress. From the impact of the media's wording in covering trans people and issues, to the way parenting gender variant children is portrayed, Lester brings their charged personal narrative to every topic and expertly lays out the work left to be done. Trans Like Me explores the ways that we are all defined by ideas of gender--whether we live as he, she, or they--and how we can strive for authenticity in a world that forces limiting labels.… (mais)

Wonderfully written book from a non-binary author who discusses a variety of issues facing the trans community. ( )

What an important book! As the mother of a gender fluid young adult this book was eye opening , beautiful and scary all at the same time. A well researched book that needs to be read. I originally checked it out from my library bit half way through bought a copy to add to my private library. ( )

A very good combination of memoir, social science study, political polemic, history, and opinion piece on feminist theory (and the limitations set by its historical lack of intersectionality.) Lester does not acknowledge in any way the source of people's discomfort with gender nonconformity, and I think just glossing over that discussion limits this to a book that will be broadening to trans allies rather than people still trying to figure things out. One notable example, there is an acknowledgment that for some (certainly not all) gender nonconforming people there is body dysphoria. They then dismiss the possibility that there is a mental health concern with the statement that they is mentally ill, and this is different from their mental health struggles so clearly there is no connection. That sort of tautology (as if all mental health issues and every person's gender dysphoria is the same) weakens what is otherwise a compelling, edifying, and completely worthwhile read. ( )

Forgot how I heard of this, but at the time the book was not yet available in the US, so I bought it from the UK. Author Lester talks about their trans experience as well as providing commentary on sex, gender, transgender experiences and more. Everything from Caitlyn Jenner to how Lester navigated dealing with people who questions their gender and more.

The book was very much a mixed bag. I appreciated that this was not a 101-level text but at the same time some of the information seemed repetitive from having read other works. At the same time, it also felt very distant and not approachable: the tone can sometimes be really academic and it didn't make for a page-turner. Some parts were really good, such as when Lester writes about the decline and death of their brother while navigating a relationship with someone who was not fully supportive of Lester's journey.

I thought overall it was an informative read, but I wish I had waited for it to be available in the US instead of having to deal with the currency exchange and buying it from a British outlet. Would also recommend that it's not for someone who is just learning about transgender people, but if you're interested in commentary vs. a traditional memoir this might be a good pick.

For a memoir I'd really recommend Janet Mock's 'Redefining Realness‎' which I found very accessible. ( )
