In my last post, I shared a list of YA books featuring trans or non-binary characters, and I wanted to provide a similar list geared towards adult readers. I think there’s a misconception that trans authors only write memoirs, which isn’t true at all! I was able to find books in a variety of genres, though I didn’t seem to have much luck with mysteries- does anyone have a recommendation I should add to the list?
This is by no means an exhaustive list, and I was disappointed to find that a few books I really wanted to feature weren’t available on Amazon, like ‘Beyond: the Queer Sci-Fi and Fantasy Comic Anthology‘, ‘Eric Olafson, Space Pirate‘ and ‘Brew‘. The fact that books are self-published, or published by a smaller, or independent company isn’t indicative of their quality. It’s more difficult to get published and promoted by a mainstream company when you’re part of a marginalized group, but that doesn’t mean those stories aren’t equally worthy of praise and attention.
The links below, though, will take you to Amazon.
