How do you fight for who you are

when the government controls what you are?

Andi knows being born an intersex "Transgressor" and then choosing to stay that way, can have lethal consequences. After all, surgical assignment is mandated by law. But she ain’t going to spend her life hiding from the Society, hooked on Flow, and wanking tourists just to make a few bucks. She's a member of the Trans Liberty Riot Brigade, an underground faction of Transgressors resisting the government’s war on their illegal genitalia.

But it’s not enough to tag their messages on shithouse walls and sniff down the next high. The government has found their headquarters, decimated their ranks, and they’re crushing the resistance. Though Andi might be nothing but a junktard, she embarks on a desperate dash to stay alive and send a call for help before they’re all killed—or worse, surgically assigned.

Andi, together with Brigade leader Elenbar, must get beyond the communications block preventing all radio transmission, which means crossing the seaboard Wall barricading the United Free States borders. It’s designed to keep enemies out and the citizens in, but amid increasing earthquakes and deadly pursuit, Andi will discover there’s a far more dangerous secret hidden deep within the Wall itself.

"Dark, haunting, and intelligently written, Trans Liberty Riot Brigade shifts away from traditional gender binarism

in narration to something far more complex and beautiful--a human being."
- JESIKAH SUNDIN, Award Winning Author of The BioDome Chronicles
 

"Andi is our main character. She's dirty and lovely and takes zero shits from anyone.

She's born intersex and refuses to go through the reassignment surgery, deeming her a second class citizen."
- BROOKLYN RAY, Author of Reborn, featured in Into the Mystic
 

"This story has a vibe that makes me think a little bit Handmaid's Tale, a little bit Les Miserables, and some 1984.

I loved Andi's character, flawed and struggling and in way over her head."
- E.M. HAMILL, Author of Dalí
 

"It delves into the deepest parts of our social, political, and personal identities and holds a mirror up so

we can better explore the vices and hopes of humanity."
- REBECCA LANGHAM, Author of Beneath the Surface
