Reviews of trans and/or non-binary lit by trans and/or non-binary reviewers

This week, I got two separate requests by cis reviewers for trans and/or non-binary reviews of trans and/or non-binary literature. They wanted to link to the review in their own review. This may be due to this wonderful essay about writing reviews of trans and/or non-binary books for cis reviewers, which suggests that cis reviewers read and consider trans and/or non-binary reviews.

These requests made me think about the reviews of trans and/or non-binary books by trans and/or non-binary reviewers that I had read, and the reviews I had written. And also…the reviews I chose not to write. I thought about the ways I often see cis people praising trans and/or non-binary rep in books that I personally found hurtful and problematic. The ways that trans and/or non-binary people warn each other in private about these books but don’t write reviews of them. I thought about how little I trust cis reviews of trans and/or non-binary books, and how rarely I read them because they often can be quite transphobic and cissexist. And how I really struggle to find reviews of some trans and/or non-binary books by trans and/or non-binary reviewers. I wrote a thread about that on twitter, which sparked a couple other threads, including this one listing trans and/or non-binary reviewers.

My intention is to make trans and/or non-binary reviews, and criticism of trans and/or non-binary literature more accessible, by gathering them together here into this rather long post. I am primarily interested in assisting other trans and/or non-binary readers in finding reviews by trans and/or non-binary folks.

I know that this list is likely to be used by cis people, and I encourage that. For one thing, this is trans and/or non-binary writing, and I gotta say, I am blown away by some of the thinking and writing in these reviews. So, please do read and consider what some trans and/or non-binary folks think about trans and/or non-binary books.

A couple of cautionary notes:

  1. Please do not take any of these reviews as the “definitive” trans and/or non-binary opinion on the book. That does not exist. Even if there is only one review listed, it is not the “right” or “true” trans and/or non-binary perspective on the book.
  2. Please do not assume that because I am trans and am including the review, that I agree with or endorse the reviewer’s opinion of the book. (I can definitely think of some examples where that is not true!)

I am listing reviews alphabetically by the title of the book, and including the gender of the reviewer. With many of these reviews, the book centers a character with a different trans and/or non-binary gender from the gender of the reviewer. That is relevant information to me as a trans reader of reviews, so I included it. (I am particularly interested in the perspectives of trans women about a book like Nevada, for example. And I’m lucky, because there are many reviews of it written by trans women!)

Note: I have inevitably left many reviews out. This is a work in progress, and I will keep updating it. Probably pretty much as soon as it goes live. Please feel free to share links of reviews of trans and/or non-binary literature by trans and/or non-binary reviewers.

What reviews are included?

For the purposes of this list, “trans and/or non-binary literature” includes:

  • All work by trans and/or non-binary writers whether or not it includes trans and/or non-binary characters, or is about trans and/or non-binary identity, themes or issues
  • Work by cis writers that includes trans and/or non-binary characters or is about trans and/or non-binary identity, themes or issues

When including work by trans and/or non-binary authors that does not include trans and/or non-binary themes, it is not my intention to out trans and/or non-binary authors.

Note: If you are an author who feels that including your work is outing you, and you wish to have it removed from this list, please let me know either in comments or via email to praxisproductions at gmail dot com.

For the purposes of this list, “trans and/or non-binary reviewer” is about public self-identification, not review content. Reviews do not need to discuss trans and/or non-binary content or authorship to be included.

It is not my intention to list reviewers if they are not out as trans and/or non-binary. If I cannot confirm by a web search whether a reviewer is out, I ask permission and only list if it is given. I identify the gender identity of the reviewer after their name based on their own profiles or their stated identity when giving permission to include the review. If I am unclear what to list, I ask, and do not include until I get a response.

Note: If you are a reviewer who wishes to be removed from this list for any reason, or to have me change which gender or name is listed, please let me know either in comments or via email to praxisproductions at gmail dot com.

  1. Hi, there! This is LM. I identify as a genderqueer person, not a “genderfluid woman.” (In the past, I identified as a woman on my blog, which I realize may be confusing.) Our members include other nonbinary people as well as binary folks; the majority of the members are queer. Thanks for featuring us!
