“I’ve always loved my body, and now I love it even more because it fits how I feel.” —Jessy “Learn your pronouns because I don’t want to have to slap somebody tonight.” —Christina “Transition? Everyone goes through one kind of transition or another. We go through transitions every day. Except mine is maybe a little more extreme.” —Mariah “Being trans is not the next step to being gay. They are similar in that they are both breaking gender rules.” —Cameron “When people say I look male or female, it messes up my head.” —Nat “My family was okay with me being gay, but trans was a different issue for them. I think a lot of it was because they had no experience with it.” —Luke In Beyond Magenta, six teens tell what it is like for them to be members of the transgender community.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] sorely needed resource for teens and, frankly, many adults…Downright revelatory…Kuklin captures these teenagers not as idealized exemplars of what it “means” to be transgender but as full, complex, and imperfect human beings. As Kuklin writes, ‘My subjects’ willingness to brave bullying and condemnation in order to reveal their individual selves makes it impossible to be nothing less than awestruck.’ She isn’t wrong. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Kuklin brings her intimate, compassionate, and respectful lens to the stories of six transgender young people…The collective portrait that emerges from these narratives and pictures is diverse, complex, and occasionally self-contradictory—as any true story should be. Informative, revealing, powerful, and necessary.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
