Trans south

Just published: Ahonaa Roy, ed., Gender, Sexuality, Decolonization: South Asia in the World Perspective. London & NY, Routledge, 2021. It's a wide-ranging collection about gender and sexual dissidence and diversity, with stories of contestation and struggle. There are chapters on India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan and Bangladesh; chapters on South Asian diasporic groups in the Caribbean, the UK and the USA; and chapters based on South America, South Africa, and across the global South. It's available in print and as an e-book.

I have a chapter in the book, called "Trans South: Practical bases for trans internationalism", pages 209-224. It's based on discussions with trans support groups in a range of post-colonial countries, and discusses the practical issues faced, especially by trans women and other feminised trans groups, and political responses. Please contact me if you have any difficulty in access.
