Non-Binary Literary Content Creators
There aren’t a lot of trans and enby folks doing visible work in books and publishing right now, and sometimes it can be hard to find those who are. The trans book bloggers, vloggers, and other literary content creators who I follow are listed below. Aside from generating their own content, they are also amplifying trans voices in the industry, and promoting trans authors and writing.
Note: If you are a trans and/or non-binary content producer, and you would like to be featured on this page, please send me a message through the contact page!

Big5 Non-Binary Authors
This list is a work in progress, but may I recommend some of the non-binary folks who have had their work bought and published by one of the Big5 publishers (which means that their books are generally widely distributed and available through libraries!).
Please note: identities, pronouns, and words used to describe gender are fluid. This list is not perfect, and is intended as a resource. If there is someone on this list who has been accidentally misrepresented somehow, or I am missing someone who should be included, please let me know through the contact page!
