Submission Call for Trans stories

I was looking at binders yesterday and ran across a submissions call that I thought I should promote. One of these days I will actually write down my pensive ponderings instead of just posting things I've run across. Maybe soon.

Share your story!

Hey guys,

I am in the process of starting to write a book in which transgender people share their experiences.

So, if you are willing to share, I would love to hear your personal stories. You can choose to write about whatever you want....

- your life story
- how you felt growing up
- how you identify....FTM? trans? gender queer? none of the above?
- your transition experience
- the world through the eyes of a trans person
- your coming out story
- the trans community and what it means to you
- poetry
- or any other topic that you can apply your personal experience to!

These stories will be compiled into an ebook format. Those of you who contribute to the project will receive a free copy.

I hope that in compiling this book I can provide a resource for people who are questioning or coming to terms with what it means to be "trans." Many times, realizing that there are others out there who feel the same is a huge relief and confidence builder. While there are many personal pages on the web, there are few resources that provide a collection of stories in one place. It is my hope that I can provide that with this book.

Thank you all for reading, and I hope to hear your stories!

Where to send your stories:
You may either send them as a message on myspace, or email them to Make sure to include the word "story" in the subject line.

What to include:
- Your name (this can be your real name or you can make one up if you prefer)
- Age
- email address (necessary for me to send you a copy of the completed book)

- photo of yourself or something significant to your story (please no other people without their permission)
- location (where you live or where your story took place)

If you send us your story we will happily send you a free copy of the completed eBook!
