#PrideLibrary19: Day 1 TBR

pl19-1

Hi hi, y’all!

I saw today on another blog that a few lovely people on Twitter/Instagram (@anniekslibrary, ) are running a fun hashtag called #PrideLibrary19 during Pride month!

The prompts they’ve put together seem like fun, so I thought it would be a nice segment to host on the blog for the month of June! For each post, I’ll endeavor to share 6 different books that work with the prompt.

So, today, on June 1st, I present the first prompt: (T)O (B)E (R)EAD!

ARC REVIEW: Trans Power by Juno Roche

SUMMARY

44437095Publisher: UBC Press
Release Date: November 21, 2019
Received From: NetGalley

Leading figures from the trans and non-binary community discuss the realities and practicalities of sex and intimacy.

In the follow-up to Queer Sex, her radical guide to sex, desire and dating in the trans and non-binary community, Juno Roche pushes the boundaries of trans representation even further by moving beyond themes of intimacy, pleasure and relationships and focusing on the mechanics of sex itself. A collection of interviews with leading figures from the trans and non-binary community, they talk about the practicalities of sex as a trans person. They discuss how trans bodies can inherently bring a range of practical issues to the bedroom and explore the wonder and potential of sex when the bodies involved are not cis. Reframing the discussion of trans sex in terms of empowerment and autonomy, this is a deeply personal, honest and instructive book.
