The SAGE Encyclopedia of Trans Studies Examines the Experiences of the Trans Community

SAGE published The SAGE Encyclopedia of Trans Studies, a two-volume set with more than 300 entries exploring transgender people’s experiences across various subjects, cultures, and life stages. It “takes an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to examine discrimination, correct misconceptions, and increase trans awareness.” For example, it covers healthcare discrimination, the Stonewall riots, and key individuals such as Jazz Jennings and Chaz Bono.

The 300-plus contributors come from the social and behavioral sciences and humanities fields. They include Monica F. Helms (creator of the trans pride flag), Rachel Crandall-Crocker (creator of the International Day of Transgender Visibility), Kylar Broadus (founder of the Trans People of Color Coalition), Mara Keisling (founder and executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality), and Marquis Bey (author of Them Goon Rules: Fugitive Essays on Radical Black Feminism).

“We aimed to consider trans people’s experiences in diverse contexts and systems, as well as across different life stages, and transitions,” says Abbie E. Goldberg, the encyclopedia’s co-editor and the director of women’s and gender studies at Clark University. “We are hopeful scholars will read and incorporate the information into their thinking, writing, and teaching and that policymakers and activists draw on the many important topics in this encyclopedia as the basis for their transformative work.”
