Transgender Kids at the Crossroads:
Impacts of Colonialism, Racism and Poverty

In recent years transgender children have gained visibility via mainstream and social media but the majority of these visible kids are white and relatively wealthy. Given the range of complex experiences trans kids are vulnerable to, it is crucial to situate transgender kids within broader relations of power and oppression, yet much existing scholarship tends to focus on relatively privileged, rather than socioeconomically marginal, children. In this paper I draw on critical race/assemblage theorizing from trans scholars of colour and allies to outline the importance of an integrated anti-oppression approach for understanding and supporting more precarious transgender kids.

— ABOUT DR. ANN TRAVERS

Dr. Ann Travers is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Simon Fraser University. Their recent book, The Trans Generation: How Trans Kids (and Their Parents) Are Creating a Gender Revolution, situates trans kids in Canada and the US, white settler nations characterized by significant social inequality. They are also the Principal Investigator on a SSHRC Insight Grant titled “Gender Vectors of the GVA: Using video game technology to assess social safety nets for transgender and gender nonconforming children and youth in the Lower Mainland.” In addition to a central research focus on transgender children and youth, Dr. Travers has published extensively on the relationship between sport and social justice, with particular emphasis on the inclusion and exclusion of women, queer and trans people of all ages.
