As the fight for transgender rights has grown and made incredible strides, so too has a new generation of activists and celebrities stepped forward into the spotlight to promote awareness, sensitivity, and respect for their community. The articles in this book share the stories of dozens of the figures who have been key in the evolving push for greater trans visibility and acceptance. Featuring the lives and words of such prominent figures as Laverne Cox, Jennifer Finley Boylan, and Caitlyn Jenner, these pieces highlight the ways in which prominent individuals living incredibly public lives are changing the conversation around the transgender community and the rights and respect its members deserve.
