Based on interviews conducted with parents of trans and gender diverse children in the UK, this book presents an account and analysis of the love, support, and advocacy involved in parenting trans and gender diverse children. Mikulak explores how parents negotiate and challenge cis-normativity to make familial, educational, and healthcare settings livable for their trans and gender diverse children. By examining the educational and emotional labor that parents perform as they advocate for their children across these different settings, the book highlights the value of parental expertise and labor while calling out the systemic failures that continue to make this work necessary. This research will be of interest to scholars researching family studies, kinship studies, gender studies, and queer studies.
