Surveying over four centuries, this volume brings together a wide-ranging selection of artworks and artefacts that highlight under-recognised histories of trans and gender-nonconforming communities.

Through the contributions of artists, writers, poets, activists, and scholars, this title reflects on historical erasure to imagine trans futures.
An expansive array of artworks and artifacts charts not a patriarchal history but a gender-neutral, trans-centric hirstory. The first publication of its kind, this expansive survey celebrates trans forebears, highlights struggles and triumphs, and reflects on the legacies of trans creative expression. This book is published by the Museum of Trans Hirstory & Art, a conceptual art project of artist Chris E. Vargas that is forever “under construction” by design to allow continual transformation.
