Chloe's book recommendations - Part 3

Updated: Mar 29

I am excited to highlight some of my favourite books that I use in my work as an LGBTQ counsellor and trainer. This is part of a series of blogs.

Next up is ...

Queer Sex: A Trans and Non-Binary Guide to Intimacy, Pleasure and Relationships

Who wrote it?

Juno Roche – an internationally recognised trans writer and campaigner, and co-founder of Trans Workers UK and the Trans Teachers Network.

What the book is about?

Juno interviews a diverse range of trans and non-binary people about sex, desire and dating.

Interviewees include Fox Fisher, Ugla Stefanía Kristjönudóttir Jónsdóttir, Meg-John Barker and many more.

Published in 2018, this is the first in a series of three books about trans and non-binary people.

Other books in the series are:

Trans Power: Own Your Gender

Gender Explorers: Our Stories of Growing Up Trans and Changing the World

Why I find it Helpful?

This is a book like no other I had come across. When I first read it two years ago I was blown away by how honest and open Juno facilitated such deep and intimate interviews. It has helped me to continue to learn more about the diversity of queer sex, our bodies and desire. Reading about real people helped give me a further insight into how different queer people experience sex and intimacy.

I love the title too; it is so punchy and makes it clear what the book is about. I read my paperback copy with pride in public places.
