This empowering collection of personal experiences details the lived realities of trans people and why they decided to transition.

Through over one hundred interviews with individuals, this book details the diverse experiences and challenges faced by those who transition - both male-to-female and female-to-male – to become who they really believe they are. These powerful stories of undergoing the transition process explore a range of topics such as hormone treatments; reassignment surgeries; coming out; sex and sexuality; physical, emotional and mental health; and transphobia, discrimination, and hate crime. Also highlighted are the lives of non-binary individuals and those who cross-dress to form a wider understanding of gender fluidity and the varied ways in which people experience gender.

Draws on in-depth interviews with over a hundred transgender and non-binary individuals to explore the lived realities of being trans.

One of the first books to foreground the actual voices and diverse experiences of transgender and non-binary individuals.

Advances information on a wide range of topics such as hormone treatments, reassignment surgeries, physical, emotional and mental health, sex and sexuality and transphobia.

An accessible introduction to the transitioning process - both male-to-female and female-to-male - and the reasons why people decide to transition.

Declan Henry is a creative non-fiction writer and registered social worker with a Master of Science Degree in Mental Health Social Work and a BA in Education and Community Studies. He lives in Kent.

This book gives an important, valuable platform to many diverse trans voices. We must listen and learn from their experiences and concerns; and act in solidarity with their human rights struggle. - Peter Tatchell, Director, Peter Tatchell Foundation

We congratulate Declan Henry on developing this perceptive account of trans experiences, richly illustrated with a wide array of authentic personal narratives. It is a timely reminder of the diversity of trans individuals and the many barriers to equal treatment they still face. We commend the book to everyone who is in a position to improve their lives. - Bernard Reed OBE, Trustee, Gender and Identity Research and Education Society (GIRES)

Declan Henry starts the book with a refreshingly honest confession that at one point he knew very little about the T in LGBT. With complete earnestness he sets out to give an overview of the transgender community in simple and very readable sections. He has packed this small book full of information, snippets of enlightening interviews and his thoughts about transgender equality and equality in its widest sense. A must read for anyone wishing to be an ally who realises that only with knowledge and understanding can you change hearts and minds. - Juno Roche, Writer, campaigner and Patron of cliniQ

Declan Henry's 'Trans Voices' captures the diversity of the breadth of the transgender experience through personal stories that make the topic accessible and understandable for any reader and give the book heart that many other books on the subject lack. - Charlie Craggs, Founder of Nail Transphobia

What comes across well, and is refreshing to read, is the range and variety of experiences: that there isn't one way to be trans or to experience gender variance.
Any counsellor working (or likely to work) with trans and gender-variant clients would do well to read it. It may also be useful for clients who are family and friends, and are looking for information and understanding.

- Alex Sanderson-Shortt MA, MBACP, relationship and LGBTQ+ specialist counsellor in private practice, Therapy Today

Whether you're just coming out, have been out for years or whether you just know someone who's trans, this book is a great read. It highlights the breadth of differences within the trans community and relays the authentic experiences of those interviewed. If you are in the process of coming out and know people around you who are struggling with the concept, recommend this book. - Daniel Zagorski, Trans*Action Magazine
