Stephanie Brill is currently calling for submissions for a book about transgender pregnancy & conception. This book will include:
• Using transwomen as donors
• Transmale pregnancies
• Transmale partners of biowomen
• Transmen/transwomen parenting together
Please send submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The back story on this call for submissions is pretty interesting. This upcoming trans book follows Stephanie Brill’s previous book, The New Essential Guide to Lesbian Conception, Pregnancy & Birth. When it was being published, evidently the publisher, Alyson Books, ditched out on Brill’s trans-pregnancy & conception topics.
Brill is co-founder and director of Maia Midwifery and Preconception Services, which serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered and heterosexual families. Here’s the statement from Mai Midwifery’s website about the exclusion of trans material from her book:
This Book is Trans Inclusive
and inclusive of all gender expressions and identities. However, the publisher declined to include the two new chapters dedicated to issues of transgender conception and pregnancy. They also declined to use a more inclusive subtitle to reflect the breadth of this book (bisexual, single, trans and gender queer parents). For this we apologize. However, Stephanie is now calling for submissions for another book in the works specifically addressing trans issues. To contact Stephanie Brill, click here.
