"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
