Annotated Bibliography: Selected Readings on Transvestism, Transsexualism and Related Subjects (2000)

Posted on Aug 15, 2013 in Bibliographies, Columns, Gender, Magazines, Newsletters, TG Forum

The bibliography presented is divided into two major categories: professional and popular publications. The professional category contains objective scientific research literature, whereas the popular category contains works of a more general nature, some of them very subjective.

It astonished me.

Most researchers included male-to-female transsexuals and transgendered people in the Men Having Sex With Men group. I did find a few articles, and published a brief bibliography in the fourth edition of AEGIS News.

A Selective Bibliography of Transsexualism (2002)

Posted on Nov 2, 2011 in Bibliographies, Gender, Journals

Instead, the pathology was shifted from the gender-nonconformist to a society which cannot tolerate difference.
