Trans Day of Visibility 2021 Recommendation List

March 31st was International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) -- an annual event dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments of transgender and gender nonconforming people while raising awareness of the work that still needs to be done to achieve trans justice.

Print: A Bookstore believes that reading diverse stories, especially sharing these stories with younger generations, is an important step in building a future worth celebrating. All readers should have access to books that represent their experiences and their communities.

While this list is in no way exhaustive, we've created a recommended reading list below. GLSEN has also compiled a list of resources for educators, students, and advocates you can use to further your education here.
