"Trans explores the physical, psychological and cultural impact of being transgender. In July 2010, aged thirty-one years old, Juliet Jacques underwent sex reassignment surgery, and for the first time her body matched the person she felt she had been since childhood. Jacques's deeply moving story of growing up and finding an identity is also an examination of the politics of gender. In this account of her remarkable life story, Jacques shares a journey through her relationship to gender and pop culture from the Smiths to Pedro Almo̤dvar to Dana International."--From publisher description.
