Social and Psychological Account of Gender Transition: The Diary of a Transsexual Academic
|Author: ||Teague, Gypsy Elaine|
This work documents one man’s transition to womanhood. Diary entries complement each stage of the experience. Never before has a transgender narrative been presented in such depth or detail.
“Through dulcet prose, Ms. Teague demonstrates the intricate process of becoming a woman. By deconstructing gender, the reader can witness and feel the emotional changes from “man” to “woman.” Gender transition touches many lives – family members, spouses/partners, children, friends and co-workers. Ms. Teague has included all of these issues in the book, displaying with remarkable clarity the range of reactions people have with trans-issues.”

"The journal entries are heartfelt, humorous, and honest and the narratives provide a strong context. Teague is unique in that she has a very public job as an academic and therefore an public transition." Book News Inc
