A practical and highly accessible guide for those navigating society as a trans person or trying to gain understanding of the trans experience, from psychologist, content creator, and LGBTQ+ advocate Jamie Raines, with over one million YouTube subscribers.

Hey, I'm Jamie, a 29-year-old trans guy from the UK. I've been transitioning for 12 years now after realizing I was trans (by accident!) at sixteen years old. I knew I was a boy since the age of four, but realized while growing up that I was different. It was only in my teens that I found the words to express who I was and what I needed to do. Since then, I've been on testosterone for more than a decade. I've also had top and bottom surgery and legally changed my sex, so I know a few things about the transitioning process and being trans!

I want to welcome you to The T in LGBT where you can explore and learn about so many topics surrounding gender identity: realizing you're trans, starting hormones, considering surgery, and everything in between. Whether you're questioning your own identity and are looking for advice on certain stages of transition, or whether you're wanting to learn about the trans experience to support someone or understand allyship, I hope this book can be your one-stop guide to everything trans related.

And don't just take my word for it either; this book is packed full of advice, tips, and the personal stories of a range of trans voices, because no one journey is the same.

Jamie Raines is a trans man from the UK. He has a PhD in psychology focusing on transgender development and wellbeing, and advocates for LGBT+ rights online to an audience of over a million, primarily on YouTube and Instagram. He has over 1 million subscribers on YouTube alone. His channels candidly explore trans-related topics, calling out transphobia, and shining a light on what it means to be trans, Jamie's content is there to help the community, allies, and everyone in between.
