The Radical Copyeditor’s style guide for writing about transgender people

The language used to write about transgender people can make a profound impact on the credibility of your stories.

This nuanced style guide provides thoughtful advice for writing and editing stories about transgender people (whether or not gender is central to the story). Rather than consulting each entry as needed, this style guide is best read in full as a primer; the sections build on each other to give a fuller picture of the power of language in shaping how identities are perceived and respected.
