all about yves by yves rees

it is so rare that i can identify with a book this much. i guess now i know why.

“all about yves” is an autobiographic story of transition. yves rees started life as straight cis-gender woman, and at the age of thirty arrived at the realisation why that skin never sat right.

yves posesses the talent of articulating those overwhelming emotions, thoughts, and questions swirling in one’s head when they realise they are not a woman. so many things felt as if taken straight out of my head.

a truly novel feeling for me.

i’m now on a quest to get hold of more memoirs by trans and non-binary writers. if you have any recommendations, please do share!

(here i presume majority of the readers of this blog know me personally and can send me a text/dm)
