Munroe Bergdorf has signed a six-figure deal with Bloomsbury to publish her first-ever book in 2021.
The activist announced the news last week on Instagram saying she is “excited to finally be able to tell you that my debut book.
“This is a book about all of us, for all of us.” she continues. “None of us are done growing, none of us are done learning. We have everything to gain from embracing and understanding each other’s differences. In one way or another, we ALL transition.”
“You’ll see a different side to me in this book, maybe you’ll see a different side to yourself too.”
Transitional content is taken from Bergdorf’s own experiences of coming from a mixed-race family and starting her transition at the age of 24.
The book also shows research from experts to “explore how deeply ingrained transitioning is” in the human experience.
Transitional will examine six subjects, including teen years, sexuality, gender, relationships, race and identity.
The author’s statement explained how she hopes the book will help “educate all kinds of people”.
“This is a tough time for trans people living in the UK and around the world, so it means so much to be working on my first book with the largest independent publishing house in the country,” Bergdorf said.
“By sharing my lived experience as a black trans woman, I hope that this book will serve to open more minds, start important conversations and help to educate all kinds of people in a way that brings us closer to a global consciousness—especially during this time of division.”
The cover has yet to be confirmed, and the book will be released on July 1st 2021.
