Ordered First Trans Book Yesterday

Recommended Posts

I went to B&N yesterday looking for the book and they didn't have it. I asked a lady there and she said I could order it. So from the comments here and other places I ordered True Selves. It should be here in about 7 days.

I forgot to mention I ordered it as Sarah and gave all my information to her as Sarah. I don't think she ever got the connection and if she did, she was very professional about it.

One of the best books around about transsexuality.

Good for you.

Sarah, even though True Selves is a bit outdated it still is a really good book, i got it for my stepfather after i told him i was transitioning, he read it cover to cover, when i asked him if he had any questions he said the book seemed to explain everything he needed to know.

I would also recommend Whipping Girl by Julia Serano. It's a lot of trans-theory, but very dense and interesting stuff which makes you think. I've read all of Jenny Boylan's autobiographies and they are interesting in a memoir sort of way and definitely hold value for transwomen our age who are married with kids. She certainly gave me ideas about how to work with my wife (and what to expect). I've just started Donna Rose's book, and I'll let y'all know what I think of it (it's a long read...).

OMG Sarah I have that on my phone (Kindle for Android), I've been reading it and even for the books age its just amazing. That's definitely the book you'd like to pass around your family and friends. Its packed full of information and takes A LOT of stuff from the trans experience.

Definitely a great read.

I'll definitely be checking out those books Tasha.

I just purchase True Selves for my pc and Android yesterday. What's cool is you get it instantly and it's a little cheaper than a book.

Heather,

I have as well as corresponding with the author, who can be alternately lovely and terse. Professor Boylan is an excellent author and the book provided a great number of keys for how I approached transition. I highly recommend it.

I'm glad you were able to parse out the name of the book and author from that post. Thanks for the input

Sorry about the formatting. For others it's She's not there - a life in two genders by Boylan
