about this item

In this ground-breaking study, Aaron Devor provides a compassionate, intimate, and incisive look at the life experiences of forty-five trans men. Emerging into 21st-century political and social conversations, questions persist about these individuals. Who are they? How do they come to know themselves as transsexual? What do they do about it? How do their families cope? Who loves them? What does it mean for the rest of us? To answer these and other questions, Devor spent years compiling in-depth interviews and researching the lives of transsexual and transgendered people. Here, he traces the everyday and significant events that coalesce in transsexual identity, culminating in gender and sex transformation. Using his subjects' own words as illustrations, Devor looks at how childhood, adolescence, and adult experiences with family members, peers, and lovers works to shape and clarify FTM images of themselves as men. With a new introduction, Devor positions the volume in twenty-first century debates of identity politics and community-building, providing a window into his own self-exploration as a result of his research.
