All About Yves

In 2018, Yves Rees was 30 when they understood they were transgender.

Then known as a woman called Anne, Yves had to grapple with the sudden knowledge that they were not, in fact, a woman at all. Yves Rees takes us on a deeply personal journey of re-becoming, laying bare the messiness of bodies, gender, and identity.

As a historian and co-host of the popular podcast Archive Fever, Yves has layered their book All About Yves with wider historical, social, linguistic, and cultural contextual research that pieces together a clear and nuanced understanding of the gender diverse and trans community.

All About Yves is about confronting and living with complicated questions: How do you discover who you really are? How do you re-learn to live in the world as a different gender?
