Gender Recovery

Trans and Queer Voices on Mental Health, Addiction and Transition

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Intimate and ground-breaking, this anthology of essays and poetry by trans, two-spirit and non-binary people explores the trials and triumphs of recovery, focusing on addiction, mental health and transition.

Covering topics such as anxiety, OCD, PTSD and eating disorders, these stories reclaim and rewrite the narrative on gender identity and mental health and act as a conversation and a collective healing for all trans people. Moving away from medicalization and foregrounding the lived experiences of trans people in their own words, these accounts provide salient and practical advice on recovery and will empower others as they recover.

Ariel Estrella is a queer Latinx/e scholar hailing from Queens, NYC who focuses their advocacy on fostering beloved communities. Ariel's writing has appeared in anthologies published by Arsenal Pulp, Jessica Kingsley Publishers, and Tia Chucha Press.
