love_always_coverLOVE, ALWAYS: Partners of Trans People on Intimacy, Challenge, & Resilience
Edited by Becky Garrison & Jordon Johnson

In over 40 essays, letters, and poems, readers hear from people who often receive little airtime in popular culture: The partners of transgender people. Now, as trans visibility continues to rise, so do the voices of those who stand side-by-side with their trans loved ones. In a first-of-its kind collection, we catch glimpses of love, strife and growth from those who witness and support gender transition, even as they themselves are going through their own transition in seeing gender, labels, and their own self anew.

dear_sister_coverDear Sister: Letters from Survivors of Sexual Violence
Lisa Factora-Borchers (Editor); Aishah Shahidah Simmons (Foreword)

Dear Sister shares the lessons, memories, and vision of over fifty artists, activists, mothers, writers, and students who share their stories of survival or what it means to be an advocate and ally to survivors. Written in an epistolary format, this multi-generational, multi-ethnic collection of letters and essays is a moving journey into the hearts and minds of the survivors of rape, incest, and other forms of sexual violence, written directly to and for other survivors.
