Black on Both Sides: A Racial History of Trans Identity by C. Riley Snorton
African American trans narratives, which have been overlooked by many, are the focus of this book. The timeline is from the mid 1800s to the late 2010s.
It examines the relationship between race and “the construction of and representation of transgender subjects;” how gender was conceptualized with ties to slavery and racialized gender; and much more.
Black on Both Sides has won numerous awards, including an American Library Association Stonewall Honor in 2018; a Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Nonfiction 2018; and the John Boswell Prize from the American Historical Association 2018.
