If You Give A Trans Person A Book Club is a virtual book club where folks will get the chance to read a selection of books that feature trans characters and/or are written by trans authors. This group is for anyone who is trans/transgender, non-binary, gender queer, gender fluid, gender non-conforming, gender questioning/curious, or is otherwise part of the gender-diverse community.
We honor that every individual is their own expert and every individual has the right to make their own choices including how they explain, understand, address, and describe their lived experience and identities.
Join us on the 3rd Monday of each month @ 6:30PM-8:00PM EST for a group discussion of If You Give A Trans Person A Book Club’s current book choice. Over the course of 1-3 months (depending on the current book choice), we will be reading one book and participating in open discussions about it during our monthly meetings. We’ll be releasing a schedule so you’ll know exactly what will be discussed at each meeting. Attendance is not mandatory- come as you are whenever you want! Live captions will be provided.
This book club is being co-facilitated by Beck DeTrempe (they/them) and Nicole Torres (she/they).
This space was made possible through a partnership between Peer Support Space and Basically Wonderful.

If you are unable to purchase the book we’re reading, please contact Beck DeTrempe to discuss scholarship opportunities. Limited scholarships are available and are first-come, however, we set money aside for this and really want money to not be a barrier. Please let Beck know if you could use help purchasing a book. If you would like to donate towards this scholarship fund, please visit this donation link.
We love our allies, but this space is not an ally space. This group will stay closed to its identity-specific patrons only. We will be posting our book recommendations, and encourage you to read them on your own if you’re looking for books with more trans representation.
