Linda Gromko MD is a Board Certified Family Physician who has worked with the transgender community for years. She explains the basics of gender identity, sexual orientation, puberty, puberty blockers, hormone treatments, and gender affirming surgeries. She shares years of patient wisdom about "presentation,"i.e., appearing in your true gender. Her section on Thriving and Surviving is packed with practical information on getting through every day in the best way possible - from coming out to parents, to school issues and bathroom safety, to love and sex. Why is this book important? We know that transgender kids and their families need specialized information. Alarmingly, the suicide attempt rate among trans youth is close to half! This book is intended to give gender non-conforming kids the information they need to grow to be happy, productive, loving and loved. It's intended to provide the information we need as parents, educators, and health care providers to do better with and for our kids.

Transgender people deal with a range of health issues. Some are specific to the community, others affect it disproportionately, and others impact transgender and cisgender people alike. Readers will learn about mental and emotional health, gender dysphoria, hormone replacement therapy (including puberty-blocking hormones), gender affirmation surgery, and more. They’ll be reminded that, while surgery and hormone treatments can be life saving, they are neither right for every transgender person nor a requirement for being transgender. They’ll also read about the barriers to care that transgender people frequently face and get advice on dealing with a health care system marked by cissexism.
