Becoming a Visible Man.
Well-known as a transgender activist and educator, Jamison Green turns out to be an engaging writer as well; his memoir reflects the same calming energy that has made him so effective as a spokesman on transgender issues. Green covers a childhood in which strangers saw him as a boy even when he wore a dress; an adolescence spent struggling to decipher his awakening desire for girls; adulthood as a lesbian in San Francisco; and the determination to undergo sex-reassignment surgery that crystallized when, despite his then-female body, his baby daughter called him "daddy."
