Over the weekend we got a message from one of our readers, Will, asking for some help finding books to read:

Hi there! Do you happen to know of any books/stories with a trans MC (nb or genderqueer included) who is on the ace spectrum? I’ve been looking for ages and have not had a ton of luck finding that particular intersection.

I’m ashamed to admit that I could only think of one or two books off the top of my head. But with the help of some excellent folks on Twitter, I’m excited to share with you a list of trans + ace-spectrum books for your reading pleasure!

  • “Assassins: Nemesis” by Erica Cameron. YA. Has an MC that’s intersex and NB + ace-spectrum. (Goodreads)
  • “The Traitor’s Tunnel” by CM Spivey. Fantasy. Character is pan-romantic asexual and trans. (Goodreads)
  • “Chamelon Moon” by RoAnna Sylver. SciFi. Both trans & ace rep, as well as an NB-ace character, and an agender-ace character. (Goodreads)
  • “Swansea” by Elliott Junkyard (Sweet Revenge #1). SFF. Airship pirates, serial, one of the MCs is grey-ace and trans! (Goodreads)
  • “Terminal” by AM Blaushild. Urban Fantasy. Online web serial (FREE!!) with an NB, asexual, and grey-romantic protagonist. (Website / AO3)
