Shon Faye

Shon Faye was born in Bristol, and is now based in London. She left a career in law to pursue writing and campaigning, working in the charity sector with Amnesty International and Stonewall. She was an editor-at-large at Dazed, and her writing has been published by the Guardian, the Independent and Vice, among others. Faye recently launched an acclaimed podcast series, Call Me Mother, interviewing trailblazing LGBTQ elders.

Her best-selling, debut book The Transgender Issue is a landmark work that signals the beginning of a new, healthier conversation about trans life. It is a manifesto for change, anda  call for justice and solidarity between all marginalised people and minorities. Trans liberation goes to the root of what our society is and what it could be; it offers the possibility of a more just, free and joyful world for all of us.

“Few books are as urgent as Shon Faye’s debut…Faye has hope for the future – and maybe so should we.” – Independent
