The title The T is Not Silent was derived from a quote by Janet Mock. She and I were both at a convening hosted by the Arcus Foundation, where she is on the board. We were doing our introductions—there were Transgender activists from all across the country in the room—and she said, “The T is no longer going to be silent,” and I immediately thought, That’s going to be the title of my next book.
Visibility in the Trans community is increasing dramatically. Ultimately, this book is an effort to create understanding and awareness of a marginalized community. A community that is invisible to most and vilified by some. A community that is traumatized by the constant threat of violence as well as unemployment, housing instability, and discrimination in multiple areas of social and economic life. A community that is also creative, beautiful, and resilient.
