A virtual book club for trans folks & books with trans representation.

About this event

If You Give A Trans Person A Book Club is a virtual book club for trans folks & books with trans representation! We meet on the 3rd Monday of each month @ 6:30PM-8:00PM EST.

You must email us to receive the link to join us at this meeting. Even if you register/RSVP for this meeting, you must still email us to receive the link. Please send an email to beck@basicallywonderful.online with the subject line “Trans Book Club Zoom Link”.

This group is for anyone who is trans/transgender, non-binary, gender queer, gender fluid, gender non-conforming, gender questioning/curious, or is otherwise part of the gender-diverse community.

We honor that every individual is their own expert and every individual has the right to make their own choices including how they explain, understand, address, and describe their lived experience and identities.

Join us for a group discussion of If You Give A Trans Person A Book Club’s current book choice. Over the course of up to three months, we will be reading one book and participating in open discussions about it during our monthly meetings. We’ll be releasing a schedule so you’ll know exactly what will be discussed at each meeting. Attendance is not mandatory- come as you are whenever you want!

This book club is being co-facilitated by Beck DeTrempe (they/them) and Nicole Torres (she/they).

If you are unable to purchase the book we’re reading, please contact Beck DeTrempe to discuss scholarship opportunities. Limited scholarships are available and are first-come, however, we set money aside for this and really want money to not be a barrier. Please let Beck know if you could use help purchasing a book.

We love our allies, but this space is not an ally space. This group will stay closed to its identity-specific patrons only. We will be posting our book recommendations, and encourage you to read them on your own if you’re looking for books with more trans representation.

ASL Interpreters are available by request. Please email us at beck@basicallywonderful.online to request ASL Interpretation at least two weeks prior to the meeting date. If you make a request under two weeks, we will do our best to accommodate you, but can not guarantee an interpreter will be available.

For questions, accessibility needs, or book scholarships please contact Beck DeTrempe at beck@basicallywonderful.online

This space was made possible through a partnership between Peer Support Space and Basically Wonderful.
