Alo Johnston ‘15

Am I Trans Enough Book Jacket blue print on yellow

After thousands of hours of research, conversations with hundreds of trans people, and a personal journey through transition, Alo Johnston ‘15 (Los Angeles, MA in Clinical Psychology) announces the publication of his first book, coming February 21, 2023, through Jessica Kingsley Publishers. Am I Trans Enough?: How to Overcome Your Doubts and Find Your Authentic Self is a work that explores historical narratives that fuel internalized transphobia and reveals the effects of a transphobic world on those coming out or questioning a life as a trans person. 

Johnston hopes to cultivate a space with this text for readers to engage with their fears and doubts – whether they have begun their own trans journey or not – and ultimately encourage readers to live as their most authentic selves.
