A groundbreaking work of LGBT literature takes an honest look at the life, love, and struggles of transgender teens.

Author and photographer Susan Kuklin met and interviewed six transgender or gender-neutral young adults and used her considerable skills to represent them thoughtfully and respectfully before, during, and after their personal acknowledgment of gender preference. Portraits, family photographs, and candid images grace the pages, augmenting the emotional and physical journey each youth has taken. Each honest discussion and disclosure, whether joyful or heartbreaking, is completely different from the other because of family dynamics, living situations, gender
, and the transition these teens make in recognition of their true selves.

[A] sorely needed resource for teens and, frankly, many adults... Downright revelatory. ... Kuklin captures these teenagers not as idealized exemplars of what it "means" to be transgender but as full, complex, and imperfect human beings. As Kuklin writes, "My subjects’ willingness to brave bullying and condemnation in order to reveal their individual selves makes it impossible to be nothing less than awestruck." She isn’t wrong.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Kuklin brings her intimate, compassionate and respectful lens to the stories of six transgender young people.
... The collective portrait that emerges from these narratives and pictures is diverse, complex and occasionally self-contradictory -- as any true story should be.Informative, revealing, powerful and necessary.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

[A] strikingly in-depth examination of the sometimes clinical complexities of being transgender, even as Kuklin’s empathy-inducing pictures put a human face on the experience. ... Kuklin’s important new book brings welcome clarity to a subject that has often been obscure and gives faces—literally and metaphorically—to a segment of the teen population that has too long been invisible. Speaking with equal impact to both the reader’s heart and mind, Beyond Magenta is highly recommended.
—Booklist (starred review)

Readers [will] become immersed in these young adults’ voices and experiences. The youth interviewed here do not uniformly share It Gets Better-style happy endings, but their strength is nonetheless inspirational as they face ongoing challenges with families, sexual and romantic relationships, bullies, schools, transitions, mental health, and more. The level of detail about their lives, and the diversity of their identities–including gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, and geography–provide a powerful antidote to the isolation and stigma that some transgender youth experience. ... There is much here that will resonate with and hearten the kids who need it and will foster understanding and support among those who live and work with transgender teens
—School Library Journal

Pain and possibility are juxtaposed in this groundbreaking book that by its very existence portends a better future.
—San Francisco Chronicle

It is a testament to Susan Kuklin's gifts as a listener and interviewer that her subjects describe their lives with such candor. ... Kuklin introduces each teen with a bit of background, and often (but not always) the teen's gender at birth. Kuklin treats her subjects with tenderness and respect. Her book provides both reassurance and answers to questions that teens may not even realize they have.
—Shelf Awareness Pro

The presentation of the spectrum of experiences is remarkably nuanced and sensitive... Kuklin also brings her skills as a photographer to the book’s design, using some pictures documentary-style interspersed throughout an individual’s interview, others grouped as breathtaking galleries that explore expression or isolation.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Kuklin’s book is not just a lifeline for teens who are going through something similar and need to see themselves and their lives so openly portrayed—this book is an important read for the parents, friends, and loved ones who want to understand what a transgender teen might be going through. This book is worth having on any shelf in any library and will not linger there long. ... A highly informative resource that is powerful, respectful, honest, and most importantly, long overdue.

In her edited transcriptions of the interviews, Kuklin lets her subjects speak wholly for themselves... Photographs (of most of the subjects) are candid and winning; and appended material, including Kuklin’s explanation of her interview process, a Q&A with the director of a clinic for transgendered teens, and a great resource list, is valuable.
—The Horn Book

This book examines a sensitive issue and explains the spectrum and diversity within the transgender community as well as defines the distinction between transgenders and individuals identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or queer. ... This book is a valuable resource for students desiring information on gender identity and the LGBTQ community.
—Library Media Connection

An eye-opener. ... Through extensive interviews, Susan Kuklin has captured the thinking and personalities of each subject in this book. Her sensitive photographs shows them as interesting people who have struggled to understand themselves and how they each, in their own unique way, differ from the norm.
—The Huffington Post

[A] candid, inspiring book. ... The teens are members of a group, but also distinct individuals, each with a unique, highly personal story. It goes without saying that their decision to share these stories is courageous. But being brave and taking chances is what transitioning is all about.
—The Chicago Tribune

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sensational 15. Februar 2014
Von sawyer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book represents us in such a beautiful and complete way. I felt moved by each young person's tale. I am thrilled to hear of what clinics like the Callen-Lorde Community Health Center in NY are doing, helping teens stay away from dangerous situations. Did I mention exquisite photography? These people come alive in the eyes of Susan Kuklin. I was fascinated from cover to cover, chapter one all the way through the sources and footnotes. I would recommend this to parents, children with supervision, coworkers and friends. Anyone who stands to gain a little understanding. As with every other awareness movement in the past we are coming to find more and more that these people are our friends, our teachers, they are all around us and they are people who need to be understood and welcomed. I am sending a copy to my god child, my father, transgendered friends, LGBTQ allied friends, and donating a copy to my favorite coffee shop. I truly hope she, Susan Kuklin, will be writing more of these such books and expanding on the group of young adults she has already met with. I'd love to know what becomes of them. I feel like I have already met them personally. This was such a well researched and well presented book. I highly recommend reading and sharing.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting and thought provoking 11. März 2014
Von David's Wife - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This book shares the stories of six transgender young people. Their stories are told well and are interesting. I found it quite interesting that two of the young people describe how different it is to be treated like the other gender. Jessy describes it as male privilege - that she felt that people treated her more respectfully as a male than as a female and Christine did not want people holding doors for her and found some of the ways that she was treated as a female a bit less respectful than she had been treated as a male. Two of the people portrayed in the book seem deeply unhappy and mentally a bit unbalanced and I think that is sad. One has anger management issues and another has been diagnosed in the past as a bipolar, clinical psychopath with narcissistic tendencies. The other people seem more comfortable and happy with themselves. I also found it interesting that all of the young people claimed that most people are fine with the homosexual label, but much less understanding about being transgender or gender neutral. The young people in this book all have gone to a clinic and take hormones in order to transition to the other gender and the effects of the hormones are described and explained. None of them has had gender reversal surgery though. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great in-depth view 25. März 2014
Von Wally Many - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed the in-depth view of these experiences. But I would have like more on how younger kids deal with the problems, especially in a less accepting family. And what about the children of less wealth. This is one problem that I find with much of the LGBT material including fiction. Almost all of the kids have a car and what seems like unlimited access the things that many of our youth just can not afford.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is long overdue. It is written and photographed with love and sensitivity about an important subject matter for teens, their families, their friends, and for all people who wish to understand this topic better. I congratulate the author for her inspirational work and her gift of candor and power.
5.0 von 5 Sternen everyone should read this book 24. August 2014
Von pomogirl - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is an excellent introduction to transgender issues for teens, their parents, and anyone who really wants to know what these kids face. And it isn't about only one kind of trans person. There are men, women, and non-binary individuals profiled in the book, and all of them have taken different paths. I think everyone should read this book.
