Trans Mission: My Quest to a Beard Hardcover \ Paperback

Author : Alex Bertie Pages : 304 pages Publisher : Little, Brown Books for Young Readers Language : ISBN-10 : 9780316529037 ISBN-13 : 9780316529037 A brave first-hand account of online personality Alex Bertie's life, struggles, and victories as a transgender teen, as well as a groundbreaking guide for transitioning teen. I guess we should start at the beginning. I was born on November 2nd, 1995. The doctors in the hospital took one look at my genitals and slapped an F on my birth certificate. 'F' for female, not fail--though that would actually have been kind of appropriate given present circumstances. When I was fifteen, I realized I was a transgender man. That makes it sound like I had some kind of lightbulb moment. In reality, coming to grips with my identity has taken a long time. Over the last six years, I've come out to my family and friends, changed my name, battled the healthcare system, started taking male hormones and have had surgery on my chest. My quest to a beard is almost complete. This is my


story. Accessible and emotional, Trans Mission fills a gap in nonfiction about and for transgender teens.
