Captive Genders: Trans Embodiment and the Prison Industrial Complex

by Eric A. Stanley and Nat Smith (Editors) - £16.50  AK Press (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781849352345 | ISBN 10: 1849352348

Pathologized, terrorized, and confined, trans/gender non-conforming and queer folks have always struggled against the enormity of the prison industrial complex.
 
The first collection of its kind, Eric A. Stanley and Nat Smith bring together current and former prisoners, activists, and academics to offer new ways for understanding how race, gender, ability, and sexuality are lived under the crushing weight of captivity. Through a politic of gender self-determination, this collection argues that trans/queer liberation and prison abolition must be grown together.
 
From rioting against police violence and critiquing hate crimes legislation to prisoners demanding access to HIV medications, and far beyond, Captive Gender is a challenge for us all to join the struggle.
