This first-of-its-kind encyclopedia features more than 300 well-researched articles and takes an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to trans studies. Entries address a wide range of topics, from broad concepts (e.g., the criminal justice system, activism, and mental health) to specific subjects (e.g., the trans pride flag, the Informed Consent Model, and voice therapy), as well as key historical figures, events, and organizations (e.g., Lili Elbe, the Stonewall Riots, Black Lives Matter). Entries focus on diverse lives, identities, and contexts, including the experiences of trans people in different racial, religious, and sexual communities in the United States and the variety of ways that gender is expressed in other countries.
