This is a roundup of a group of articles I have recently done for the Anti*Capitalist Resistance on trans solidarity. These were largely collaborative efforts with other LGBTQ+ comrades.

This is the first of three articles aiming to create a discussion about the supposed controversies of transgender politics today, and how the left engages with these controversies.

Rowan Fortune asks what is needed for a genuine socialist solidarity with the trans struggle.
Additionally, here is a presentation I chaired for the A*CR by the queer historian Sacha Coward. Entitled ‘Without Agenda’, this illustrated talk explores how we discuss gender in the past; respectfully addressing people whose lived experience do not fit the gender norms of today.
