I highly recommend The (now-on-hiatus) Booklet Series, "a new wave of trans literature."

patreon.com/transwomenwriters

“Though health access for our community has been long fought for, there are still gaps that leave us specifically vulnerable to health threats, such as this pandemic.

“ These reports of wildlife triumphs in countries hard-hit by the novel coronavirus got hundreds of thousands of retweets. They went viral on Instagram and Tik Tok. They made news headlines.
