Abstract
 
Description
Literary Nonfiction. LGBTQIA Studies. A call to trans men everywhere to embrace their personal journey of transition, MANNING UP brings together a wide range of voices, from young men to elders, to candidly share their journeys of transitioning to manhood. More than just the basic coming out narrative, the editors have created a much needed testament to the beautiful struggle of actualizing one's personal identity. The authors are thoughtful about their privilege and have no fear of being seen as sensitive and vulnerable with their newfound masculinity. However, what is most subversive is that the stories present a poignant image of familial acceptance--something that most trans narratives still tend to shy away from. We hear men whose masculinity is shaped by intimate interactions with fathers, brothers, colleagues and lovers. MANNING UP shows the complexity and beauty of transition that is not only unique to the trans male experience, but with its underlying theme of love, is a book that is relatable to all genders. - from Amzon
