Skyhorse Publishing announced today that it has acquired world rights to Detransition: A Memoir by British K-Pop singer, Oli London. The deal was negotiated by Tony Lyons for Skyhorse Publishing, Inc. and Mark Gottlieb at Trident Media Group Literary Agency.

“I am looking forward to sharing an intimate look into my gender and self-identity struggles,” stated London about his memoir Detransition.“My book will offer a close look at trans ideology and give real world examples of what pushes young people into transitioning, including the pressures of social media, the education system, the media, and the multi–billion dollar gender affirming care industry.”

London’s struggle with identity issues and plastic surgeries has been well documented for the last five years, amassing him over 2 million followers, 2.3 billion views, and over 120 TV appearances. While he is known for his viral online videos, he has not previously shared the full depth of his battle with gender dysphoria and self–identity. After London transitioned from a man to a woman and then de-transitioned to a male again, he become an outspoken activist against gender affirming surgery in teenagers, and has appeared regularly on numerous national news networks to bring his message and personal experiences to others.

Oli London’s Detransition is a raw, deep and insightful look into one man’s struggle with self-identity, gender and culture and how he navigates the waters as an online influencer in the age of social media,” stated Mark Gottlieb, Vice President and Literary Agent at Trident Media Group.

Detransition aims to document London’s own personal identity struggles with gender and self–identity while encouraging readers to question the current societal trends and challenge their own way of thinking.

“We recognize that this is a sensitive topic for many people,” stated Tony Lyons, president and founder of Skyhorse Publishing. “We welcome Oli’s memoir and the opportunity for him to tell his story and share his perspective.”

Detransition will be published in August 2023.
