Janet Mock, Redefining Realness

I'm not going to a do my usual sort of review on Redefining Realness as it is an autobiography and can't be analysed the same way as a fictional novel, however I still wanted to bring it to people's attention.

Redefining Realness, Janet Mock, autobiography, life story, hardback, book cover, review, trans, womanhood,

Janet Mock is a writer, speaker and advocate of trans rights. Redefining Realness is her story about growing up, identity, her experiences as a child of drug-addicted parents and her involvement in sex work. It is a courageous book, well-written and thought provoking.

As well as telling her personal story, Janet discuses trans issues with great clarity, educating and advocating tolerance and support. She explains concepts regarding gender and sex in an easily accessible way. More importantly, Redefining Realness will be a great comfort and affirmation to young trans, or non-binary people.

I highly recommend Janet's autobiography, it is an insightful and important book.
