Providing an accessible and authoritative introduction to issues around People of Colour (POC) trans inclusion, this book uses case studies, tips, checklists and anonymous survey results to set out best practice for any professionals working with trans people to create safer spaces, support and awareness.

Trans people of colour are often excluded because gender and race are treated as separate issues. They are therefore left out from movements and services and in trans and non-binary spaces, their POC identities are overlooked. Choudrey’s guide introduces the theory of intersectionality from the start, giving practical tips and steps to ensure that the community as a whole may be represented and creates a safer space for trans people of colour to thrive.

An empowering and self-preserving tool, Supporting Trans People of Colour is an invaluable resource for therapists, counsellors, healthcare professionals, and those working in education and charities, as well as those wanting to make their approach and service more inclusive.

Reviews

This highly accessible and important book breaks free from overwhelmingly white trans-narratives that indelibly link queerness to whiteness. Choudrey skilfully brings gender fluidity within Asia, Africa and the Americas, with its relationship to colonialism and the British Empire, out of the shadows.
Eugene Ellis, Author of The Race Conversation
A much needed resource for all individuals, groups and organisations looking to become more inclusive of trans people of colour. After a helpful primer on key concepts and language, Sabah Choudrey succinctly summarises the impact of intersecting axes of oppression, and sets out clearly what we need to do - from self reflection to systemic change - in order to cultivate safer spaces and practices. A deeply helpful and engaging read from start to finish.
