While the visibility of trans people has risen sharply, there are still many divergences and controversies, particularly between those affected and (mostly cis) professionals. They concern both treatment - and in particular the terms and/or conditions of access to care during transition - and the views of medical staff on trans people.

The book brings together testimonies from those concerned. The words of trans activists rub shoulders with those of healthcare professionals - doctors, pediatricians, urologists, psychiatrists, reproductive medicine specialists - as well as academics - psychoanalysts, sociologists, philosophers - and artists involved in the trans world.

By proposing a radically different approach to the discourse on transidentity, these testimonies open up another avenue of exploration: how does transidentity affect us, whether we're trans or cis, and how does it influence medical practice and care?
