DIGITAL TRANS READING LIST
This is a working list of research literature at the intersection of (transgender and non-binary people) and (digital technology; digital, online, and social media; sociotechnical systems; and the Internet), compiled by Oliver Haimson. I am probably missing some important pieces, and I expect this list to continue to grow over time. Please email me with additions, and I will add them to the list.

Disclaimer: I have read many but not all of these pieces, and while many of them are respectful to trans people, some are not; yet I include them here for the sake of completeness.

Inclusion criteria: While most of this work is trans-specific, the list includes research about LGBTQ people broadly if more than 25% of participants are trans and/or non-binary, or if the work is particularly focused on trans issues. The list only includes English language work at this time. While this list includes some work about trans people and digital media, for a more complete list of trans media studies research please see Thomas J. Billard's Bibliography of Transgender Media Studies.
