This is what some folks have said about Rosalyne Blumenstein and her book BRANDED T'
"Blumenstein pulls no punches and neither did her life on the mean streets."
-Loren Cameron, Photographer, Body Alchemy
"It is a tale of sheer enduring spirit. She takes us from the flesh bars of Broadway to Graduate School, from New York to LA, from shame to self-confidence. I hung on every word."
-Dallas Denny, Editor, Transgender Tapestry magazine
"I loved this book! What an incredible journey! Not only is this the story of Rosalyne's life, but also the story of so many people whose lives would have gone undocumented until now. Another fabulous aspect of the book is how it chronicles the history of a very exciting era in New York City. The perspective is fresh and enlightening, unique and empowering. It'll make a great movie!"
