True Trans Bike Rebel

by Lydia Rogue Editor, River Katz Cover, Elly Blue Series Editor and Elly Bangs Contributor

Bicycling from a non-heteronormative, non-cisgender perspective

Bicycling as a sport, a means of transportation, and a passionate pursuit is explored here by transgender, nonbinary, and intersex authors and artists. This groundbreaking volume includes a diverse range of experiences

  • A woman sets off on a long-distance tour across the desert, where she finds the courage she needs to continue back at home
  • The executive director of a major advocacy organization walks us through his coming-out process and the precedent it set
  • A young person survives school to find solace and identity in nature
  • A contemplation of the parallels of building a bicycle and crafting one's own body
