Miriam J. Abelson is an Assistant Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Portland State University. Her book, Men in Place (University of Minnesota Press, 2019), demonstrates through a large and geographically diverse interview study with transgender men that contemporary U.S. masculinity, race, and sexuality are deeply embedded in the spaces and places men move through in their everyday lives. Her current research focuses on rural queer and trans lives in the U.S. inland Northwest.

 

Ann Travers is Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology & Anthropology at Simon Fraser University. Their recent book, The Trans Generation: How Trans Kids (and Their Parents) Are Creating a Gender Revolution, situates trans kids in Canada and the US, white settler nations characterized by significant social inequality.

 

Julian Gill-Peterson is an Assistant Professor of English and Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. Her book, Histories of the Transgender Child (University of Minnesota Press, 2018), is the recipient of a Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Nonfiction. Julian is currently at work on a book entitled “Gender Underground: A History of Trans DIY.”
