This Thursday (March 31st) is the International Transgender Day of Visibility.
For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it's a day of empowerment and support for the trans community. It's a day for everyone to show their support for us, and for us to bring attention to our accomplishments around the globe. At the same time, it's a day of education.
This year's theme is #MoreThanVisibility, recognizing that while visibility is important, we must also take direct action against transphobia around the world. Visibility alone cannot end the violence and the hate, but we can use it as a vital tool for transgender justice.
Whether you are looking to educate or celebrate, express yourself or support someone else, today we are sharing some of our favorite romantic novels about the trans experience.
Breaking Free by Cat Grant
One of the most emotionally powerful stories I have ever read, beautifully told, with a realistic and positive approach to gender, sex, and love.
Coffee Date by K. Lynn
A romantic tale about a lovely woman, completely comfortable in her transition, and a man who has been hurt before.
Memories by Valentina Heart
A gender-positive romance that begins with the happily-ever-after, then explores how the fully committed couple came to be.
Staying Her: A Transgender Romance by Holly Sharp
A delightfully refreshing read that expores an evolution of gender, friendship, identity, and love.
Be My Queen by RayeAnn Carter
One of the best transgender romances I've read in years, hooking the reader emotionally as well as intellectually.
