THE LIVES OF TRANSGENDER PEOPLE X200 | ADVOCATE.COMTransparent: Love, Family, and Living the T with Transgender Teenagers  ($12, Mariner Books)
When lesbian journalist Cris Beam moved to Los Angeles, she decided to volunteer at a school for gay and transgender kids. The move was life-changing for Beam who found herself involved with a group of transgirls — Foxxjazell, Dominique, Christina, and Ariel — who let her witness their fascinating, sometimes heartbreaking, but always defiant lives. Transparent is easily one of the best books about trans lives written by an author who doesn’t identify as transgender.
