Ruth Morgan, Charl Marais, Joy Rosemary Wellbeloved, "Trans: Transgender Life Stories from South Africa"
English | ISBN: 1920196226 | 2010 | EPUB | 220 pages | 2,7 MB
Featuring more than 20 original voices, all with a great deal to say about today's transgender experience, this illuminating collection offers a brand-new tone for the literary world. Complemented by the extraordinary photographs of renowned transgender photographer Robert Hamblin, these unique stories are interspersed with discussion chapters, body maps, and archival material. The true accounts collected here touch on the isolation and despair that many individuals in this marginalized group feel and each explains the need to counter negative stereotypes, reduce discrimination, and provide accurate information on gender identity. As the first South African collection of its kind, this narrative provides honest representations of transgender lives and offers visible, positive role models to other people facing similar experiences.
