Four acclaimed trans authors based in Canada and New York read from their latest works: H. Felix Chau Bradley reads from Personal Attention Roleplay; River Halen reads from Dream Rooms; Eli Tareq El Bechelany-Lynch reads from The Good Arabs; Jeanne Thornton reads from Summer Fun and/or new work. Personal Attention Roleplay is praised by Casey Plett as “a perfect album of stories”; Dream Rooms is described by Gail Scott as “a marvelous confection of the author’s definition of ‘revolution’”; and The Good Arabs as “bold and deeply necessary” by Liz Howard. Summer Fun won the 2022 Lambda Award for transgender fiction.
