Beyond Magenta

Article Highlights GLBTRT, Trans YA Books

 Both the 2014 Stonewall youth award winner and GLBTRT member Kyle Lukoff are cited in an article about Susan Kuklin’s new book, Beyond Magenta, profiling six transgender young adults and their experiences in grappling with identity as it relates to sexuality and gender. Although more books about the transgender experience are being published, Lukoff lamented the shortage of ones by transpeople in a message to Buzzfeed: “The specific lack I see of T titles is, for one, that the most well-publicized titles are written by well-meaning cis people who research what it’s like to be trans, rather than writing fiction grounded in an authentic lived experience.” The article not only shows the rich visuals of the book but also lists other books for teens that reflect their trans experiences.
