Written by a social worker, popular educator, and member of the transgender community, this well-rounded resource
combines an accessible portrait of transgenderism with a rich history of transgender life and its unique experiences of
discrimination. Chapters introduce transgenderism and its psychological, physical, and social processes. They describe
the coming out process and its effect on family and friends, the relationship between sexual orientation, and gender and
the differences between transsexualism and lesser-known types of transgenderism. The volume covers the characteristics
of Gender Identity Disorder/Gender Dysphoria and the development of the transgender movement. Each chapter explains how
transgender individuals handle their gender identity, how others view it within the context of non-transgender society,
and how the transitioning of genders is made possible. Featuring men who become women, women who become men, and those
who live in between and beyond traditional classifications, this book is written for students, professionals, friends,
and family members.
