With raw honesty, author Vivek Shraya delivers an important record of the cumulative damage caused by misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia, in turn releasing trauma from a body that has always refused to assimilate. Her latest book explores how masculinity was imposed on her as a boy and continues to haunt her as a girl—and how we might reimagine gender for the 21st century. I’m Afraid of Men
is a journey from camouflage to a riot of colour, and a blueprint for how we might cherish all that makes us different and conquer all that makes us afraid.
