Artistic Expressions of Transgender Youth by Tony Ferraiolo

There are plenty of books in existence about transgender youth. There are a lot of good people, trying to give good information, and for the most part they are. But you might be asking yourself what makes this book different than the others. This book is different because you will be educated directly by transgender children and teens. Not by a medical professional. Not by a life coach. Not even by me. This book will illustrate how transgender children and teens feel and think about themselves, as told through their art. Each drawing is accompanied by a statement where each child describes what their art means to them.

I am so excited to be able to bring to you Artistic Expressions of Transgender Youth volume 2. After hearing from so many parents, educators, medical and mental health providers on how much volume one helped them realize how their presence in a transgender and non-binary child’s life can either help them live a happy, healthy and productive life or lead them down a path of depression, self-harm, or even suicidal ideations, I knew that a second volume with two different questions would help them even more.

In 2008 Tony founded two youth groups: Translation, a support group for transgender teenagers, and Create Yourself, an art group for transgender and gender non conforming children under the age of twelve. He also assisted in forming TransPACT, a support group for parents of transgender and gender non-conforming children. The work he’s been doing with transgender youth and families has allowed him to witness a child go from hopelessness to hopefulness by simply affirming their gender. Tony watches families grow through the struggles they face when their child comes out as transgender.
