What does it mean for someone to be 'trans'?
What are the implications of this for healthcare provision?
Drawing on the findings of an extensive research project, this book addresses urgent challenges and debates in trans health. It interweaves patient voices with social theory and autobiography, offering an innovative look at how shifting language, patient mistrust, waiting lists and professional power shape clinical encounters, and exploring what a better future might look like for trans patients.
"This valuable book provides an innovative approach to trans health weaving personal narrative, sociological theories and activist perspectives. It makes a vital contribution to promoting health equality for trans people."
Julie Fish, Centre for LGBTQ research, De Montfort University, Leicester
"One of the most impressive trans books I've read. Pearce's research is of the utmost importance - her writing accessible, her conclusions transformational."
CN Lester, author of ''Trans Like Me''
"An important, well-researched and original book ... a rich blend of theory and research ... A crucial new addition to the growing body of work on transgender experience."
