    Take Me There' is a collection that’s by, for, and about transfolk, genderqueers, gender outlaws, and gender variant folks—people who challenge and defy rigid gender constructions. In mainstream media, the erotic identities, sex lives, and fantasies of transgender and genderqueer people are often oversimplified, sensationalized, or invisible. 'Take Me There' is an erotica collection unlike any other. The power of seeing and being seen is a central theme in the anthology; it’s not simply about passing or not passing (an idea often explored with transgender characters), but about being acknowledged and desired in a sexual context.
