Trans Youth Stories

An Intergenerational Dialogue after the "Trans Tipping Point"

By Dr. Lindsay Herriot, Kate Fry


The first of its kind, Trans Youth Stories: An Intergenerational Dialogue after the “Trans Tipping Point” is a thematically organized collection of narratives, fiction, nonfiction, letters, poetry, graphics/comics, and visual pieces created by 26 Canadian transgender youth between the ages of 10 and 18. Arranged in sections on childhood, families, bodies, everyday life, schooling, mental health, and acceptance, each section concludes with a response written by a Canadian scholar in transgender studies in conversation with the youth. These responses contextualize the youth pieces with recent scholarship from the field and equip readers with concrete actions for research, activism, and professional practice.

Offering a unique and truthful depiction of young trans life and a holistic view of what it might be like to be a young trans person today, this groundbreaking volume will serve as an essential sourcebook for both students and teachers of gender and sexuality studies, trans studies, child and youth studies, counselling, and education.


  • a unique collection centering the voices of trans youth through firsthand perspectives followed by an extended scholarly response
  • includes additional resources and follow-up responses by scholars to help readers contextualize writings of trans youth
