No Poster Boy: Trans Fag Essays by Elliott DeLine
2016, paperback

Outsider. Working class. Neuroatypical. Nonbinary. No Poster Boy.

Elliott DeLine is an award-winning author of Refuse, I Know Very Well How I Got My Name, and Show Trans. His dynamic fiction and memoir writing has been informed by his experiences as a young transgender man contending with discrimination, poverty, mental illness, trauma and sexual identity.

No Poster Boy is a collection of his most accessible, intimate, and daring essays on the subject of an underrepresented population: transgender men who are attracted to men. His humorous and sobering writing is eye-opening to outsiders and validating to those who share his experiences. Speaking from a place outside academia, outside metropolitan queer life, and challenging to mainstream puff-trans-politics, “Elliott DeLine is of the most searingly honest voices in this exciting generation of young trans writers.” (Roger Hallas, former director of LGBT Studies at Syracuse University)
