Like your masculinity served with contradictions? Self-Organizing Men is the book for trans and cis people who want to explore masculinity open-heartedly. If you like thoughtful, complex and humorous viewpoints, from nontrans men like Tim T’West to trans men like Dr. Bobby Noble, you’ll love this book.
A man is a man because he says he is. The transgender and non-transgender authors in Self-Organizing Men – through poetry, visual images, nonfiction prose and humor – discuss how paradox and the contradictions within transgender masculinity create opportunities for sustained connections to love, women and childhood as well as disrupting traditional transsexual and transgender narratives of masculinity and the gendered body. Contributors include Tim T’ West, Eli Clare and Scott Turner Schofield.
