The personal is political; these voices raised in harmony prove it."-- Jamison Green, educator and author, "Becoming a Visible Man "

Review: Finding the Real Me: True Tales of Sex and Gender DiversityUser Review - Christy - Goodreads
I read this for an essay on transgendered people in social work... I really liked the things I learned from it. Since it's composed of short stories, and I'm a busy person, I didn't fully finish it. But I learned a lot nevertheless. Must read (or similar subject matter) for all humans. Read full review
