Trans Rights Readathon 2024 Wrap-up

Thanks to everyone who donated to the Lavender Rights Project as part of my Trans Rights Readathon campaign. Together, we raised $3,286.50 with 39 donors!

This hit 82% of my ambitious $4,000 goal. We raised more in 2024 than in 2023 and had more individual donors, too, so I call that a win.

All 8 reviews for the books I read are live:

👊 Bad Boy by Elliot Wake (contemporary dark romance)
🦑 Boys Weekend by Mattie Lubchansky (satire horror comic)
💞 Heartstopper Volume 2 by Alice Oseman (YA romance comic)
🗼 Heartstopper Volume 3 by Alice Oseman
💛 Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman
🏚️ Tell Me I’m Worthless by Alison Rumfitt (horror)
🏳️‍⚧️ The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You by S. Bear Bergman (nonfiction personal essays)
🪻 The Spirit Bares Its Teeth by Andrew Joseph White (YA horror)

If you’re looking for books by trans authors or featuring trans characters, a book reviewer Rhys has compiled a huge spreadsheet of books across reading levels, fiction and nonfiction, and genres. If you’re in Seattle, check out Charlie’s Queer Books in Fremont, which is owned and operated by Charlie, a trans man.

If you’d like to continue the good vibes, please support Mercury Stardust and Jory as they raise $2 million for trans healthcare with Point of Pride! Point of Pride provides funds for trans people to access healthcare and other essential needs like HRT, surgeries, binders, undergarments, and other life-saving and affirming things.

Read trans books and support trans organizations all year! We need your vocal and material support.
