"The foundational text that gave me life-changing context, helping me to understand who I was and who came before me."--Tourmaline, activist and filmmaker

Transgender Warriors
is an essential read for trans people of all ages who want to learn about the towering figures who have come before them--and for everyone who is part of the fight for trans liberation

This groundbreaking book--far ahead of its time when first published in 1996 and still galvanizing today--interweaves history, memoir, and gender studies to show that transgender people, far from being a modern phenomenon, have always existed and have exerted their influence throughout history. Leslie Feinberg--hirself a lifelong transgender revolutionary--reveals the origin of the check-one-box-only gender system and shows how zie found empowerment in the lives of transgender warriors around the world, from the Two Spirits of the Americas to the many genders of India, from the trans shamans of East Asia to the gender-bending Queen Nzinga of Angola, from Joan of Arc to Marsha P. Johnson and beyond.
