"Finding the Real Me "is an extraordinary collection of real-life stories told by a wide-range of sex and gender diverse people. These healing tales of struggle and transformation reveal just how creative, resourceful, and adventurous the individuals in this community can be and also helps to bridge the gap between ignorance and understanding. As each incredible story unfolds we become part of the author's journey to self-acceptance and join the celebration of their new life. Page by page, we laugh, cry, and learn to appreciate these wonderful courageous people and the road they walked to be their true selves.
"Finding the Real Me" is a landmark book that encourages us to embrace diversity, to never fear our differences, and to remain always in awe of our amazing possibilities.

"This groundbreaking selection of autobiographies gives loud and celebratory voice to the frequently hidden and ignored community of those with diverse sex and gender expression. An important and long overdue publication that is sure to illuminate and inform people of all genders who enter the realm of its pages."
-- Elizabeth Riley, general manager, Gender Centre, Sydney, Australia

"If you ever doubted that transgender and transsexual issues cross national and cultural boundaries, this provocative collection of voices ought to be enlightening. The confidence, self-awareness, creativity, playfulness, and commitment to life that these people share in the face of invalidation, restriction, oppression, and even violence is absolutely inspiring. The personal is political; these voices raised in harmony prove it."-- Jamison Green, educator and author, "Becoming a Visible Man "
