San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 25, 2005
Born female yet little identified with that gender, these writers illuminate the experiences of those who identify as FTM (female to male), and those whose gender is more fluid, genderqueers and thirdgenders. Given the opportunity to explore any aspect of gender identity change, from dating to family issues, these authors have written stories, essays, and poems offering heartfelt insight into the dynamics of identity politics and the definition of self.
An amazing introduction for those who want to understand more about transgender and gender-variant people, these moving narratives are invaluable tools for learning more about queer theory, gender politics, cultural studies, and transgender history. Although all born female, these writers prove that biology doesn't control destiny.
