TransLash Zine Vol. 6: ‘Anti-Trans Hate Machine’

Team TransLash is excited to share that TransLash Zine Vol. 6: Anti-Trans Hate Machine is available now to read for free online and to purchase in print!

This special edition of TransLash Zine is a companion reader for our podcast series, The Anti-Trans Hate Machine: A Plot Against Equality. Season 2 is available now; find us wherever you listen to podcasts. In this season of the #AntiTransHateMachine, we illuminate how the right wing has fueled these bills by generating a breathtaking and wide-ranging disinformation campaign.

Within the pages of this zine, you will experience the personal impact of the #AntiTransHateMachine on trans lives. You will read stories from folks have survived ideological detransition and conversion therapy pressures from their family and society at large.

This edition of TransLash Zine is dedicated to all the brave TGNC folks who shared their detransition and conversion therapy stories with us in 2023 and beyond. This is also dedicated to everyone at TransLash who worked on the #AntiTransHateMachine campaign, acknowledging the psychological and emotional impact of this work.
