About this item

Entering Transmasculinity seeks to immerse the reader in a nuanced and context-rich consideration of the discourses shaping transmasculine consciousness and communication. It offers an examination of mediated and experienced transmasculine subjectivities and aims to capture the apparent contradictions that structure transmasculine experience, perception and identification. By placing specific instances of blog posts, YouTube narratives, media portrayals, anecdotal scholarship and counselling literature from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom in context, it explores the negotiation of the meta-discourses of innate transmasculinity and discursive masculinity.
Entering Transmasculinity is a deep and holistic study of the intersecting and overlapping discourses that shape transgender identities. From tracing the relationship between transmasculinity’s emancipatory potential and its simultaneously homogenizing implications, to issues of gender-queerness, sexual minorities, normativity and fatherhood, this is the first book to synthesize the disparate areas of academic study into a theory of the transmasculine self and its formation.
