Beyond Magenta

By Susan Kuklin

A 2015 Stonewall Honor Book A groundbreaking work of LGBT literature takes an honest look at the life, love, and struggles of transgender teens.

Author and photographer Susan Kuklin met and interviewed six transgender or gender-neutral young adults and used her considerable skills to represent them thoughtfully and respectfully before, during, and after their personal acknowledgment of gender preference. Portraits, family photographs, and candid images grace the pages, augmenting the emotional and physical journey each youth has taken. Each honest discussion and disclosure, whether joyful or heartbreaking, is completely different from the other because of family dynamics, living situations, gender, and the transition these teens make in recognition of their true selves.

  • Groundbreaking book for the LGBT community.
  • Highly personal stories of six teens who question their gender or are going through a transition from one sex to another.
  • Stunning, full-color portraits by photographer Susan Kuklin show the joy and anguish of six people realizing their gender identity.
