Book Released!

Over the past almost two years, I’ve been working on an anthology of transmasculine experiences with a great co-editor Emmett Lundberg. We’re pleased to announce the release of:

FindingMasculinityFrontCover (1)

Cover Design by: Sheyam Ghieth

Finding Masculinity: Female to Male Transition in Adulthood, a collection of essays from a small cross section of the transgender male community that shares insight into the diversity of life experiences of transgender men, beyond the traditional narrative.

This anthology examines the many facets of life that transition impacts; transitioning on the job, emotional and spiritual growth, family, navigating the medical community, as well as romantic relationships. The true stories come from scientists, teachers, fathers, veterans, and artists who share how being visible as the masculine humans they identify as has developed, changed, and evolved their sense of masculinity.
