The whole concept of gender identity is being increasingly challenged and words such as non-binary, pansexual, transgender, cisgender and gender dysphoria are becoming commonplace. This book explores the cultures and people of the past who have embraced, challenged or quietly sub...verted society's expectations about gender. It features the current stories of openly transgender people around the world in positions of power and authority who are helping to increase recognition and acceptance of the trans community. And, as trans people often start their journeys in their teens, the book explores the experiences of some young people just at the start of their journeys.The book has a foreword by two patrons of the charity Mermaids. Jake says, ' what is becoming evident is that trans people have been around for centuries, in many guises ... transgender is certainly not trendy fad that the press would have us believe'. This book for children aged 12+ supports the study of the fascinating long history of transgender around the world.
