Yes, You Are Trans Enough
My Transition From Self-Loathing To Self-Love
Release Date: June 21st 2018
This is the deeply personal and witty account of growing up as the kid who never fitted in. Transgender blogger Mia Violet reflects on her life and how at 26 she came to finally realise she was ‘trans enough’ to be transgender, after years of knowing she was different but without the language to understand why.
From bullying, heartache and a botched coming out attempt, through to counselling, Gender Identity Clinics and acceptance, Mia confronts the ins and outs of transitioning, using her charged personal narrative to explore and confront what the media has gotten wrong. An essential read for anyone who has had to fight to be themselves.
“Honest, raw, moving: This intimate blow by blow account of a young trans woman’s odyssey to personal acceptance and authenticity really ought to be compulsory reading for anyone who ever thought in ignorance that a change of gender was a whimsical adventure”
– Christine Burns MBE, author and transgender activist
“An honest, quirky and personal story that gives valuable insight into the life of trans people. In the midst of storm of misinformation of trans people, this book serves as one of many that tell the stories of trans people from an authentic and an engaging perspective. Radical vulnerability at its finest.”
– Owl Fisher, writer and co-director of My Genderation
