"We are so strong. We fight to be ourselves. This is the real stuff--the information you won't find on TV shows or in news articles about trans people. The emotions, the practicalities, the self-doubt...the stuff they can't cram into sixty minutes and that doesn't create a provocative headline. Before he became known for his YouTube videos, Alex Bertie was an isolated, often-afraid transgender teenager looking for answers. In this revolutionary memoir and valuable resource, Alex recounts his life, struggles, and victories as a young trans man. Along the way, he provides readers with accessible, highly researched explanations of gender, sexuality, and transitions of all kinds. He explores without judgment how complicated identities can be, and how many equally authentic ways there are to be yourself and find happiness. With clarity and compassion, Alex writes as a supportive older brother for transitioning teens, their allies, their parents, and anyone looking to better understand others--and themselves."--Dust jacket.
