'Transition has not been something linear for me, my joy has come in seasons.'

Now, more than ever, trans people deserve to hear stories of joy and hope, where being trans doesn't have to be defined by fear and dysphoria, but can be experienced through courage, freedom, and the love and acceptance of their chosen families.

Through a series of uplifting, generous and beautifully crafted vignettes, T. C. Oakes-Monger gently leads you through the cycle of the seasons - beginning in Autumn and the shedding of leaves and identity, moving through the darkness of Winter, its cold days, and the reality of daily life, into Spring, newness, and change, and ending with the joy of long Summer days and being out and proud - and invites you to find similar moments of joy in your life.

Celebratory and empowering, these stories are a reminder of the power joy can bring.

About this Author

T. C. Oakes-Monger started writing as a means of survival. After growing-up as a closeted queer in a rural village and realising medical school wasn't for them, they came out as trans and started working to improve healthcare for LGBTQIA+ people. All the Things They Said We Couldn't Have is their first book.
