The anthology "Trans & Care: Trans Personen zwischen Selbstsorge, Fürsorge und Versorgung" (Trans & Care: Trans Persons between Self-Care, Care and Treatment) was developed in collaboration with my colleague María do Mar Castro Varela and the participation of a total of 22 authors. We are proud to be able to publish the first book of this kind in German. With this important and more than necessary work we hope to professionally address and improve the care situation of trans people in the German-speaking region.
"In medicine, psychology and care, trans persons are marginalized. Gender diversity is often considered together with sexual diversity - the lived experience of trans people, however, is thereby obscured. For the first time, this volume is therefore not only concerned with the current situation of trans persons in various systems, but also with the concept of "self-care". It should pave the way for action that leads to improved nursing, medical, therapeutic and social care for trans people. A majority of the contributions are written from a lived trans perspective".
The book is available in local bookstores or directly from transcript publishing:
