Trans Liberation: Beyond Pink Or Blue
In this collection of speeches and new writing, Leslie Feinberg argues passionately for the acceptance of all trans peoples - and for the absolute necessity of building coalitions between all progressive political groups. Speaking to an audience of 350 male heterosexual crossdressers and their partners at the Texas "T" Party - a speech at which Feinberg was the only person dressed in a suit and tie - s/he notes the similarities between their struggles and the struggle of the gay, lesbian, and bi communities to break down the closet doors of shame and silence. At the 7th Annual Queer Graduate Studies Conference s/he stresses the links between lesbian, gay, bi, and trans desires and the desire for education, food, and shelter. And always s/he calls for tolerance and respect - a call whose importance is brought home by the affecting self-portraits written by individuals from across the diverse trans spectrum.
