From her young childhood up through her young adulthood, this wonderful memoir takes a deeper look into the notion of what it means to be a “real” woman. Through Ms. Mock’s experiences we are able to gain a greater understanding into the distinct events that not only shaped her life, but many other transgender people’s lives. Learn more about her medical transitioning, all the harm and discrimination trans people face daily, coming out to her family, and finding her community. Ms. Mock traverses all of the hardships of finding hormones and saving up for surgery as she worked as a sex-worker. This was not for just her own sake, but also to help her family survive.
