Reviews

"The rarest of gifts, like sitting at the feet of a wise, no-fucks-given elder, listening to her testimony, and being fortified by her brilliance. A monument to the life's work of Miss Major and the liberation movements she's shaped."
--Janet Mock, author of Surpassing Certainty

"The extraordinary insights in this book, always punctuated by Miss Major's razor-sharp wit, allow us to understand how liberation movements for trans, queer and other routinely marginalized people can hold the most emancipatory potential for all."
--Angela Davis, author of Freedom Is a Constant Struggle

"Miss Major has shaped the world in countless ways from Stonewall to today by being her unruly, fabulous self, leading communities, making time, and caring for and keeping her girls going. Lucky us to live in a moment where she is radiantly shining her light unto us all through this book!"
--Tourmaline, artist, writer, and filmmaker

"Though she has faced many struggles in her eight decades on Earth, Major's resilience, optimism, and often bawdy humor shine through ... a powerful and enlightening read."
--Pax Ahimsa Gethen, Trans Writes

"[Miss Major's] most vital and resonant message is around self-hood: a continual creation and a journey to be enjoyed."
--Dinyar Godrej, New Internationalist
