Although transgender persons have been present in various societies throughout human history, it is only during the last several years that they have become widely acknowledged in our society and their right to quality medical care has been established. In the United States, endocrinologists have been providing hormonal therapy for transgender individuals for decades; however, until recently, there has been only limited literature on this subject, and non-endocrine aspects of medical care for transgender individual have not been well addressed in the endocrine literature. The goal of this volume is not only to address the latest in hormonal therapy for transgender individuals (including pediatric and geriatric age groups), but also to familiarize the reader with other aspects of transgender care, including primary and surgical care, fertility preservation, and the management of HIV infection. In addition to medical issues, psychological, social, ethical and legal issues pertinent to transgender individuals add to the complexities of successful treatment of these patients. A final chapter includes extensive additional resources for both transgender patients and providers. Thus, an endocrinologist providing care to a transgender person will be able to use this single resource to address most of the patient’s needs. While Transgender Medicine is intended primarily for endocrinologists, this book will be also useful to primary care physicians, surgeons providing gender-confirming procedures, mental health professionals participating in the care of transgender persons, and medical residents and students.

"Transgender" has become a convenient umbrella term to cover a collectivity of individuals (including cross-dressers, transvestites, transsexuals, and intersexuals) who do not conform to traditional norms of gender identity or behavior. Until recent centuries, transgender behavior has rarely been the subject of scholarly or public attention. During the 20th century, medical advances in hormone therapy and reconstructive surgery, the worldwide publicity generated by the Christine Jorgensen story in the 1950s, and the popularity of such plays and movies as La Cage Aux Folles and The Birdcage make the subject much more visible for society. This book is a compilation of autobiographies of women and men who openly describe their different and often very difficult journeys, frankly. Using a decade-by-decade format, the contributors provide the reader with critical insights into the process of realization that led to their various gender expressions. The contributors include homosexuals, heterosexuals, and bisexuals, and their life stories make clear that a good deal of diversity exists within the gender community. A thorough introduction by the editors provides many insights into gender issues from a biological, socio-anthropological, and historical perspective.

Appearing simultaneously as Journal of Bisexuality volume 2, number 1 (2002), this book considers the literary, cultural, and theoretical representations of male bisexuality. It deconstructs the negative stereotypes surrounding bisexuality and analyzes the underlying reasons for them. The precarious social position of bisexual men is addressed, and the representations of bisexuality in cultural and political discourse are examined in terms of race, sex, and gender politics. c.

And you were told it was only a theory? Learn what was really taught.The Adam-God doctrine, first clearly declared by Brigham Young, met with stiff opposition by both Saint and sinner. Eventually in the 1860s, he significantly retreated from his profounder teachings, to teaching the basic understandings of the Gospel. But then in the 1870s President Young again publicly revived the higher concepts of his revelation, as he declared it was (see chapter 116:5 for example). This book has 508 pages, with 182 chapters, each chapter a reference from a source of reliable texts. Each chapter has been further divided into verses, in order that the student or reader may cross reference his studies. The latter part of the book is divided into three approaches or theories that are supported today, for consideration. Also included in the book: a map of the universe gleaned from the Book of Abraham.This book strives to be objective by citing excerpts from Church leaders regardless of their positions on this subject. The Adam-God doctrine is not simply cited here alone, but it is seated into other related teachings of the day: decomposition, polygamy, plurality of gods, and so on. In this manner, it is hoped that the reader will appreciate the Adam-God teachings as part of a greater vision of eternity by an extraordinary man of God, and not an aberrant misgiving of a prophet gone awry. The Adam-God Revelation is the first of at least two volumes in a set called the Journal of References. (The second volume planned will be on a related topic regarding Eternity.)
