Beyond Magenta: Transgender Teens Speak Out

Beyond Magenta: Transgender Teens Speak Out

by Susan Kuklin

Author and photographer Susan Kuklin met and interviewed six transgender (or gender-neutral) young adults and presents their stories thoughtfully and respectfully — before, during, and after their personal acknowledgment of gender preference. Portraits, family photographs, and candid images grace the pages, augmenting the emotional and physical journey each youth has taken. Each honest discussion and disclosure, whether joyful or heartbreaking, is completely different from the others because of family dynamics, living situations, gender, and the transition these teens make in recognition of their true selves.
