The transgender revolution

トランスジェンダー革命と私たちの解放について

It's in the air – and calling for a mindset reset. We track the course of transgender rights and their liberating potential for us all, with compelling contributions from trans writers and artists. The human rights of transgender people are routinely abused everywhere, but Brazil has the highest murder rate. From there, Amanda Palha analyses the roots of transphobia. And CN Lester lists '9 seriously easy things' non-trans people can do to help instead of hinder. That may involve letting go of some deep-set prejudices and fixed ideas about gender

それはかねてから言われていたことで、私たちの物の見方を再考するよう促すものだ。今月号では、トランスジェンダーのライターやアーティストたちによる思考を揺さぶる文章や作品を通じ、トランスジェンダーの権利とすべての人々を解放する彼らの可能性についてその潮流をたどる。トランスジェンダーの人々に対する権利侵害は、世界中で日常茶飯事となっているが、中でもブラジルでの殺人率は最も高い。そのブラジルからはアマンダ・パラが、トランスフォビア(トランスジェンダー嫌い)の原因を分析する。そしてCNレスターは、非トランスジェンダーの人々ができる阻害ではなく支えになる「とても簡単な9の方法」を説明する。それは、ジェンダーに関して私たちの中に深く染みついた差別と固定化された考えをぬぐい去るのに役立つだろう。
