Well, it’s been a year. Such a year, in fact, that I haven’t blogged since last Christmas.
This is a quick post to tell you about two books I’m in in 2023.
Pink Therapy: Erotically Queer
Pink Therapy are adding two more publications to their existing collection of books for GSRD Therapists, Erotically Queer and Relationally Queer. Edited by Pink Therapy founder Dominic Davies and psychotherapist and author Silva Neves, both books contain a wide variety of topics and approaches.
My chapter, in Erotically Queer, is about working with LGBTQIA+ menopausal clients.
These books will provide a very thorough grounding for anyone working with, or planning to work with, Gender, Sex and Relationally Diverse clients. These two books will be published in 2023. This is great news for our profession!
Bloody Hell! And other stories – Adventures in Menopause from Across the Personal and Political Spectrum
Edited by feminist author, speaker and powerhouse Mona Eltahawy, this anthology will be published by Unbound in the next year.
In Mona’s words:
‘Too often when feminism takes that brave dive into the deep end of a taboo, it takes along just a select few: white, wealthy, cisgender, heterosexual, able-bodied women.
Bloody Hell! And Other Stories is the antidote. […]
‘It is not just cis women who experience menopause. Non-binary people, trans men and other gender non-conforming groups also experience menopause and do so under even greater levels of silence and taboo.
‘This anthology aims to expand the Menopause Moment/ Wave/ “Movement” beyond white and cis women.’
I am super excited to be part of this project! Watch this space. And fuck the patriarchy.
