LONGLISTED FOR THE POLARI FIRST BOOK PRIZE 2019
'Strong, powerful and a valuable resource' - Fox Fisher
This is the story of one trans man's exploration of gender identity, set against changing cultural attitudes from the 90s to the present day.
Caspar Baldwin grew up in a time when being trans was not widely accepted by society, and though progress has been made since then, trans men are still underrepresented and misunderstood. Grappling with the messy realities of gender expectations while giving a stark and moving account of his own experiences, Baldwin grants a nuanced understanding of what it's like to be a trans boy or man.
With its unflinching portrayal of the vulnerability, confusion, dysphoria, empowerment, peace and joy that are all part of the transition process, this book provides an invaluable support for trans men and is a memoir that breaks the mould.

Review:

As someone who was called a tomboy growing up as well, it gives invaluable and often ignored insight into the life of a trans masculine person. Strong, powerful and a valuable resource about the importance of supporting trans youth, regardless of their gender expression. - Fox Fisher, film maker, artist and campaigner

Excellent expression of self-discovery! Casper describes the psychological torture of being a young trans man in a developing woman's body. A very powerful demonstration on the need and validity of puberty blockers for trans youth. - Charlie Kiss, author of 'A New Man'

From the Author:

Caspar J. Baldwin holds a PhD in Biomedical Science from the University of Sheffield. He is a trans man who currently resides on the beautiful coast of Northumberland.
