Miquel Missé

Sociologist and trans activist

Miquel Missé Sánchez (1986) is a Barcelona-born sociologist, specialized in gender and sexuality. He currently works as a consultant and trainer in the field of gender and sexual diversity policies. His interests are focused on the promotion of a critical and plural trans culture, and on the dissemination of referents with diverse and transformative gender experiences. This involves him in various lines of work, ranging from research, pedagogy and the generation of projects that combine education, culture and thought.

Jointly with Gerard Coll-Planas he edited the book El género desordenado: críticas en torno al patologización de la transexualidad (EGALES: 2010) and, with Pol Galofre, Políticas trans. Una antología de textos desde los estudios trans norteamericanos (Egales: 2015). He is also author of the books Transexualidades, otras miradas posibles (Egales: 2013) and A la conquista del cuerpo equivocado (Egales, 2018), tanslated to Catalan (Egales, 2019) and English (The Myth of the Wrong Body, Polity Books, 2022).
