The resource guide Trans Bodies, Trans Selves is looking for contributors to its chapter on intersections of immigrant and transgender identities

Are you an immigrant or refugee, or do you come from a family of recent immigrants? Do you identify as transgender, or express your gender differently than is expected in your culture?

The upcoming book Trans Bodies, Trans Selves is looking for contributors to its chapter on intersections of transgender / immigrant identities. We are interested to hear about your experiences with gender in your culture and as an immigrant. If you would like to share your story, please email it to kate@transbodies.com by September 1st, or mail to Laura Erickson-Schroth, 564 First Avenue, 14D, NY NY 10016 (Email is preferred if you have access).

We are looking for pieces 300-800 words in length. Please also include the name you would like to use (pseudonyms are fine) and your age. If you feel comfortable, also include where you are from originally and where you live today. (Example: Chad, 37. Originally from Burma, now living in Arizona, USA.) The book will be in English, but if you strongly prefer to write in your native language, we will do everything we can to translate for you. If your story is chosen to be included, we will email you the text we plan on using so you have the chance to approve it.

Trans Bodies, Trans Selves is a resource guide for the transgender population, covering health, legal issues, cultural and social questions, history, theory, and more. It is a place for transgender and gender-questioning people, their partners and families, students, professors, guidance counselors, and others to look for up-to-date information on transgender life. For more information, visit www.transbodies.com or email kate@transbodies.com or amanda@transbodies.com with any questions or comments.
