Reviews

This book's greatest strengths are twofold: it outlines a wide diversity of gender identities that step outside of previous identity markers, including the experiences of young genderqueer people, and it contributes to research on trans people, which has been very out of date. -- Arlene Istar Lev, University of Albany, School of Social Welfare, and Choices Counseling and Consulting The authors have done an excellent job of using up-to-date references and the text is reflective of current trends. -- Gerald P. Mallon, Hunter College School of Social Work, City University of New York, and author of Social Work Practice with Transgender and Gender Variant Youth With their substantial empirical study, Genny Beemyn and Susan R. Rankin have accomplished what no other research has managed to do: through numerical analysis and narrative, they have represented the diversity of transgender people, explored in depth the range of experiences of these communities, and described the challenges many of us face. The Lives of Transgender People is an invaluable reference for researchers, activists, and policymakers. -- Paisley Currah, Brooklyn College, City University of New York The Lives of Transgender People breaks new ground. The Empty Closet ...this book serves as an excellent resource for those wishing to know more about transgender experiences, as well as those endeavoring to highlight the challenges these communities continue to face in everyday life. GLAAD Blog Lives will be a rich source of data for activists, theorists, and policymakers, as well as one possible model for doing research on sex and gender that allows us to collect meaningful data without depending on the binary male/female, man/woman dichotomies that continue to unhelpfully reduce the variety of human experience to the inflexible straightjackets of innate gender difference.
