Críticas:

"This is the book I've been looking for these last ten years! For over a decade, Jamison Green has been a kind, wise and trusted leader in the transgender community. His words have always inspired us. Becoming a Visible Man is his smart, accessible, and always compassionate take on transgender identity, desire, and political activism. A terrific blend of theory and personal narrative, it should top any and all gender studies reading lists as it will delight, enlighten and motivate students of Gender Studies in much the way that the dashing and personable Jamison Green delights, enlightens and motivates his audiences in person." "When the premier trans-activist of a generation decides to write a memoir, we should be grateful. When Jamison Green weaves his personal and political experiences into a magnificent story it is all the more reason to celebrate. Becoming a Visible Man shows why he is a leading voice to a generation of transmen and transwomen and why this issue should be on the top of the agenda for all of us in the twenty-first century."--Henry Rubin, author of Self-Made Men "An intelligent and engaging book. Jamison Green, an extraordinary activist and advocate for FTM transsexuals, demonstrates that he is also an extraordinary writer. Green artfully blends the personal, the informative, and the political, and grounds it all in a generous vision of inclusive communities. He makes a thoughtful and persuasive case for making gender visible."--Joanne Meyerowitz, author of How Sex Changed: A History of Transsexuality in the United States "Jamison Green tells, with integrity, and in a moving and thoughtful way, his story."--Dallas Denny, Editor, Transgender Tapestry Journal "Jamison Green has given a great gift�based on experience born of a great personal journey, he demystifies gender in a way that transfixes the reader. The biological journey from zygote to adulthood unfolds to challenge the neat little boxes into which our culture drives gender each day. This is an essential contribution to the growing body of literature on gender identity and expression."�Elizabeth Birch, former Executive Director, Human Rights Campaign "Jamison Green has given a great gift--based on experience born of a great personal journey, he demystifies gender in a way that transfixes the reader.

Reseña del editor:

Written by a leading activist in the transgender movement, Becoming a Visible Man is an artful and compelling inquiry into the politics of gender. Jamison Green combines candid autobiography with informed analysis to offer unique insight into the multiple challenges of the female-to-male transsexual experience, ranging from encounters with prejudice and strained relationships with family to the development of an FTM community and the realities of surgical sex reassignment. For more than a decade, Green has provided educational programs on gender-variance issues for corporations, law-enforcement agencies, social-science conferences and classes, continuing legal education, religious education, and medical venues. His comprehensive knowledge of the processes and problems encountered by transgendered and transsexual people - as well as his legal advocacy work to help ensure that gender-variant people have access to the same rights and opportunities as others - enable him to explain the issues as no transsexual author has previously done. Brimming with frank and often poignant recollections of Green's own experiences - including his childhood struggles with identity and his years as a lesbian parent prior to his sex-reassignment surgery - the book examines transsexualism as a human condition, and sex reassignment as one of the choices that some people feel compelled to make in order to manage their gender variance. Relating the FTM psyche and experience to the social and political forces at work in American society, Becoming a Visible Man also speaks consciously of universal principles that concern us all, particularly the need to live one's life honestly, openly, and passionately.
