A person’s biological sex is usually clear at birth, but gender is sometimes more complex than biological sex. Gender involves not just biology but one’s understanding of oneself—and that can be complicated. This book examines what is occurring, how people learn to accept themselves and find acceptance from others, the challenges of transitioning, and the fight for transgender rights.
