Willy’s contribution to the inaugural edition of Transgender Studies Quarterly, a keyword essay entitled “Cultural Competency,” provides a global perspective on the need for transgender cultural competency in health services, education, businesses, government agencies, law enforcement, faith-based institutions, and others throughout society.  

Willy’s contribution to the comprehensive resource Trans Bodies, Trans Selves: A Resource for the Transgender Community, is a creative non-fiction piece entitled “Reveling in Our Authenticity.” Willy's piece addresses the intersections of mixed heritage experience and trans experience: ambiguity and complexity, layers of cross-cultural experience, and societal assessments of “realness.” It invites the confidence and courage to defy exclusion and revel in our bold authenticity.

Willy’s contribution to this groundbreaking anthology, entitled “Sculptor,” uses the metaphor of his father’s work as a fine wood sculptor to explore the ways in which Willy sheds the impact of racism, the violent gaze, shame, and the legacy of Asian female subjugation to sculpt himself as a trans man and father.

Willy wrote the Foreword to this powerful book, Life Beyond My Body: A Transgender Journey to Manhood in China, the first memoir by a trans man in China.

Winner of the Lambda Literary Award!

Willy's endorsement:

 

"Trans People in Higher Education combines the powerful accessibility of compelling personal stories with the complex and often harsh findings of qualitative and quantitative research to demonstrate the continued need for trans-affirming campuses, from policy to classroom engagement. Despite more than two decades of positive changes in academic institutions, trans and nonbinary students, faculty, and staff continue to struggle for acceptance and equal access. This timely book shows that, in challenging the constricts of the binary gender system, helping others develop skills for culturally competent interactions, and expanding campus-wide policies, these individuals offer academia the best gift of all: learning opportunities and the inspiration to do better. " — Willy Wilkinson, author of Born on the Edge of Race and Gender: A Voice for Cultural Competency
