"Part poet, part cartographer, and part grassroots organizer, Feinberg escorts us lovingly through the transgender nation. . . . Trans Liberation brings together a diversity of agendas, giving a fresh, urgent twist to everything from the politics of national health-care reform to debates about infant genital mutilation and queer history."--Rachel Mattson, Village Voice Literary Supplement
"Feinberg is utterly rousing." --David Bahr, The Advocate
