TRANSparency: Speaking Our Truths

Written by and for trans and non-binary survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, the new anthology Written on the Body offers support, guidance, and hope for those who struggle to find safety at home, in the body, and other impossible-seeming places. This collection of letters written to body parts weaves together powerful narratives of gender, identity, and abuse, caringly collected and tenderly held.

In these letters, contributors are remembering, reinventing, and reclaiming their words, bodies, families, and homes as they create new definitions of what wholeness means. In writing and sharing these stories of ourselves and our bodies, bodies that often experience such severe isolation and disconnection, we begin to build resources for finding experiences in common and healing together.

Join contributors of the book as they share excerpts, answer questions, and lift up trans and non-binary voices, claiming space to be and feel alive in our bodies, alone and together, and to vision a future in which every part of us survives and thrives.
