Mirrors: Portrait of a Lesbian Transsexual
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 308 pages
This is a new, revised edition of the cult classic "Mirrors - Portrait of a Lesbian Transsexual" by Geri Nettick as told to Beth Elliott, in which Beth Elliott steps out from behind her pseudonym to claim her place in lesbian/trans activist history. The new appendix, which is the first major critical essay on the 1973 West Coast Lesbian Conference at UCLA, places Elliott's now-famous expulsion from the Daughters of Bilitis in the context of the takeover of the lesbian movement by feminists for whom "lesbian" was to be a purely political identity, as opposed to a matter of passionate, intimate and committed female bonding.

Couldn't finish it. I really wanted to like this book, since I'm a lesbian trans myself. But the 70 pages I made it through just didn't grab me and came off as a little made up somehow. Perhaps I'm being unfair and I will try to reread this later. Read full review
