Open Letter Supporting Transgender and Nonbinary People Signed by US, Canadian, and UK Authors

Stephen King, Margaret Atwood, and Roxanne Gay were among almost 2000 authors that signed an open letter supporting transgender and nonbinary people.

Stephen King, Margaret Atwood, Roxane Gay, Neil Gaiman, Maureen Johnson and David Bowles are among the signatories of the letter, which joins a list of others exposing divisions in the literary community. Hundreds of writers in Ireland and the United Kingdom signed similar letters, written in response to J.K. Rowling’s expression of what many consider to be transphobic views.
