In honor of Transgender Awareness week, we wanted to highlight some of the contributors in PYP’s newest anthology: The Real Lives of Transgender and Nonbinary Humans. In this collection of stories, each of the contributors share their stories and experiences from when they first realized that they were trans or nonbinary, through the ups and downs of life, to where they are today. Each of the contributors come from different backgrounds and walks of life but they each have a story to tell and each story is a testament to the power of hope, determination, and the possibilities open to everyone when they learn to love and accept themselves for who they really are.
