BOX SET MANNING UP - BELOW THE BELT
DESCRIPTION FOR MANNING UP:
Twenty-seven men who transitioned from female to male discuss their roles as male community members: fathers, sons, brothers, husbands, boyfriends, friends, and mentors. Not since Max Wolf Valerio’s The Testosterone Files and Jamison Green’s Becoming a Visible Man has nonfiction seen such thorough and sensitive explorations of manhood, masculinity, and male embodiment—and never in a collection with such a diversity of voices. Contributors offer an incredible range of cultural, class, ethnic, spiritual, and generational backgrounds. Their work addresses topics including birthing and raising children, gay male sexuality, facing racism, and finding solace in deeply held religious beliefs. Contributors include established writers such as Valerio, Aaron Devor (author of FTM: Female-to-Male Transsexuals in Society) and Ryan Sallans (author of Second Son), as well as exciting new authors.
DESCRIPTION OF BELOW THE BELT:
Have you ever wondered what men say about their junk? Erections, orgasms, penis pumping, pregnancy, menstruation, and genital reconstruction, these are just some of the topics explored in this remarkable collection of raw testimony by men of trans experience who share their innermost thoughts and feelings about their genitals and gender.
