The New Normal

Coming Out as Transgender in Midlife

What is it like to realize you're transgender shortly before you turn fifty years old?  The New Normal describes in exquisite detail the process of coming out to friends, family, and work, then going through transition  to being medically and legally recognized as a woman.

There are many transgender autobiographies out there.  What sets this book apart is extensive analysis of my journey from the perspectives of gender studies, psychology, and medicine.
