Beyond Magenta: Transgender Teens Speak Out (Library)
"I've always loved my body, and now I love it even more because it fits how I feel." --Jessy
"Learn your pronouns because I don't want to have to slap somebody tonight." --Christina
"Transition? Everyone goes through one kind of transition or another. We go through transitions every day. Except mine is maybe a little more extreme." --Mariah
"Being trans is not the next step to being gay. They are similar in that they are both breaking gender rules." --Cameron
"When people say I look male or female, it messes up my head." --Nat
"My family was okay with me being gay, but trans was a different issue for them. I think a lot of it was because they had no experience with it." --Luke
In Beyond Magenta, six teens tell what it is like for them to be members of the transgender community.
