What follows, after a glossary (thank goodness—I needed definitions of the terms "metagender," "she-male," "sie," "s/he," "zie," and "transgender" versus "transsexual"), are 26 stories by people from all over the world but mainly the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United States. Although some describe "being trapped in the wrong body," not all do as they make the transition from male to female or female to male. There is no magic endpoint for many but only a new beginning—a process that may take them into a relationship with someone of the opposite sex or same sex, someone born into that sex or someone who also has made a transition. Some male-to-female transsexuals may stop along the way and live indefinitely and quite comfortably with breasts and male genitalia. Many of the writings celebrate gender diversity and having had the experience of living one facet of life as a woman or man and another phase as the other.
