Publisher's Announcement

The title, long as it is, just about describes the book completely. Beginning with a discussion of the problems faced by those at odds with their gender role, the book goes on to discuss some medical theories. A brief consideration of legal issues is followed with the administrative process, dealing with personal records, change of name, driving licence, passport, income tax, national insurance and bank records. The book discusses the problems in a marriage, with children and relationships in general, and employment rights. It goes on to discuss the Standards of Care, Gender Identity Clinics and the 'real-life experience'. With detailed accounts of medication and surgery for both male-to-female and female-to-male people, this is a vital handbook for all those in this position.
