Own Your Gender
By Juno Roche
Jessica Kingsley Publishers
In the follow-up to Queer Sex, her radical guide to sex, desire and dating in the trans and non-binary community, Juno Roche pushes the boundaries of trans representation even further by moving beyond themes of intimacy, pleasure and relationships and focusing on the mechanics of sex itself. A collection of interviews with leading figures from the trans and non-binary community, they talk about the practicalities of sex as a trans person. They discuss how trans bodies can inherently bring a range of practical issues to the bedroom and explore the wonder and potential of sex when the bodies involved are not cis. Reframing the discussion of trans sex in terms of empowerment and autonomy, this is a deeply personal, honest and instructive book.
Juno Roche is an internationally recognised trans writer and campaigner, and Founder of Trans Workers UK and the Trans Teachers Network. On the Independent's Rainbow List 2015 and 2016, she is a patron of cliniQ and received the 2015 NUT Blair Peach Award for her campaign "Why Trans Teachers Matter." She regularly contributes to publications including Diva, The Guardian and Vice.
