From the Author
This is the re-edited and updated version of my earlier book Queering
the Tranny'. Whilst that edition was aimed primarily at the academic
and clinician market it became clear that many outside of the helping
professions were enjoying the insight into an extraordinary life-story.
So, now with a new publisher the material has been reworked to give this
book appeal to this much broader audience. With additional chapters and
the academic element pushed to the back of the book, it still retains
the educative quality but the emphasis has been to provide a highly
readable and enjoyable text that offers powerful insight into the world
of a transgender person. It's a story that is deeply moving and in
places highly emotive, but ultimately one that speaks of the struggle
for identity that is core to the human condition.
