    One thought on “Moving Truth(s): Queer and Transgender Desi Writings on Family”

    1. This book is incredible. It's such a diverse collection of stories that almost everyone who picks it up can relate. Although I do caution you, it focuses largely on gender-variant people, so a cisgender person may not get as much out of it. Also, some of the stories get kinda heavy, as the authors discuss abuse, depression, etc. All things considered, it's more than worth the read!
