Open Letter to Little, Brown re: THE CAPE DOCTOR
We, the undersigned members and allies of the transgender literary community, were alarmed to see Little, Brown announce it would publish a fictionalized account of a historical transgender man that appeared to misgender and wrongfully identify him. When members of the community approached the author and politely requested she approach the topic with sensitivity, she turned against them and repeatedly misgendered the subject of her novel. From her hostility toward the trans community, and her history of promoting a transphobic newspaper op-ed on social media, we cannot trust her to write a book that respects Dr. Barry. We urge Little, Brown to issue a statement that they will not publish material that persistently misgenders Dr. Barry and misrepresents his historic male life.
