Best Transgender books you've read or would recommend reading

(1/15) > >>

So not previously being an avid reader, I've recently been reading a few books involving transgender characters. These were a mix of fiction, autobiography and non fiction.

What books would you recommend which contain transgender characters or are on the subject of transgender?

A few I've started with;

* Conundrum - Jan Morris
* Orlando - Virginia Woolfe
* Transitions -  Mara Christine Drummond
* Undercover Girl - Jill Davidson
* Sliders - The dark side of transgender - Aimee Norin
* Kenna - A Transgender Life - Kenna Henderson
* Feeling wrong in your own body - Jaime Seba
My favourite and one I think is an all time classic is Conundrum.

Nevada by Imogen Binnie literally changed my life- it completely altered my perspective on things.  It's the sort of book that you want to give to all of your friends and hope that they can get half of what you did out of it. 

Whipping Girl by Julia Serano is also amazing, if you'd like a gender studies book.

It's a must-read kind of thing.  I didn't agree with everything, but that was part of the point.

Thanks all, I'll see if I can get myself a copy and get reading
