This book is for the folks who thought transition would never be an option for them. For the ones who have been told they aren’t trans enough. For the rural Southern trans kids who feel like they are alone in this world. This book is for all the trans and gender expansive Southerners who insist on continuing to breathe day after day. The ones who are bold enough to embrace self definition in a world that was not built for us to thrive. Trans in the South is dedicated to every trans Southerner who persists in growing in this rocky clay soil. We face unique challenges that other folks may never understand, but may we never forget the beauty, strength, and resiliency that lives in each one of us. You are not alone.
