Transgender Warriors: Making History from Joan of Arc to Dennis Rodman
by Leslie Feinberg Author
A personal walk through the history of transness around the world, from precolonial times to the present. Learn about trans gods in ancient Greece and India, third genders and transgender people in multiple indigenous cultures, the drag balls of 17th Century Lisbon, the heroes of Stonewall, and many more individuals and eras are recounted, closing with a compelling portrait gallery of contemporary transgender, intersex, and nonbinary people in all walks of life speaking in their own words.
First published in 1996 and continuing to spark controversy to this day, this history is engagingly written by the author of Stone Butch Blues, who weaves hir personal experiences, perspective on gender, and discovery of these histories in with the historical recountings. "It's time for a fresh look at history. And this time, I don't intend to be left out!" ze wrote.
