Summary

In Trans Like Me, CN Lester takes listeners 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.

Insightful, poignant, and well researched

I loved this book in print, and the audio book is really great to listen to.
CN Lester has written a book which is accessible for a cis audience, as well as engaging trans people. Nothing is overly simplified, yet everything is understandable and humanised. In doing this they have achieved something I am yet to see in any other book.

As a trans person CN's insights are relatable - eloquently expressing feelings I have often struggled to express. It has also given me much cause to reflect and think deeper on many of the themes touched by the book.

For a cis person curious about what it means to be trans today, who is confused by media coverage or who wants to know how to support a trans family member, friend or colleague this book gives an insight I have yet to find paralleled in any other publication.
