Becoming a Man by P. Carl


Review by Heather, a Incarcerated Trans woman

After reading how a Trans man suffers some of the same difficult issues a Trans woman goes through with family, friends, employers, and social groups it makes me now believe that they do have it just as hard.

I know during my transition I have lost family, friends and housing. While reading this story I laughed, cried, and felt exactly what he was feeling at times of questioning. I would recommend to sit down and read this book, whether you are Cisgender, Transgender or Androgynous.

I will share this book with all I know to enjoy.
