Beyond Magenta: Transgender Teens Speak Out by Susan Kuklin

it was so interesting to read the different perspectives of each person. most of them were from New York but it was clear that they all had different understandings of being trans, and their experiences even differed from my own. for example, one of them seemed to still have very binary ideals about gender (like stating that despite being a woman, her tendency to get into fights and her confrontational attitude was "pretty masculine",) but no two people are going to think the same, and their cultures and environments will play a role in how they conceive of themselves.
this is definitely a good, interesting book for parents of trans children, and questioning youth who will get to see a lot of different perspectives on being trans.
