"Come celebrate the release of a new book about top surgery! Designed, illustrated and written by @rimo_skyo with contributions from a handful of trans folks across Portland, the illustrated pages of I’m Having Top Surgery interrupt the sterile, dehumanizing realm of the operating room to offer a meditation on the political dimensions of medical gatekeeping and trans liberation. 

Part-essay, part-handbook, and full-on love poem to their community, this project draws upon Rimona's experiences alongside the knowledge of trans scholars, healthcare experts, and friends. šŸŒ» Filled with practical insights like the difference between periareolar and keyhole procedures, how to get a therapist’s letter of approval, and what to expect from recovery, the work also delves into the personal, guiding conversations for talking about top surgery with loved ones. Join us this June to get your copy and learn more about the book!" (Promo Copy)
