Representing Trans: Linguistic, Legal and Everyday Perspectives

Reading our pre-release copy as contributors of Representing Trans: Linguistic, Legal and Everyday Perspectives, edited by Evan Hazenberg and Miriam Meyerhoff.

A beautiful book that shares some really interesting insights and perspectives, complete with stunning photography by Fiona Clark. Representing Trans is due for release this week, Thursday 12th October 2017.

 

We especially wish to thank Evan Hazenberg for all his korero, patience, and  hard work in collaborating with us on the included essay Towards a Model of Informed Consent: Trans Healthcare in Aotearoa New Zealand. Amazing work, you are the best.

Although she didn’t write in the book, Ama Witanga was also part of our presentation team at the workshop that kicked this off, and others also contributed their korero on the day, including community advocates Karen d’Konyak, Mani Mitchell, Tom Hamilton, and others.
 

Conclusion: some really fantastic writing, very recommended.
