Book Reading at Portland Q Center June 9th at 7 pm
Join Us at the Q Center to Hear Excerpts from Life Beyond My Body: A Transgender Journey to Manhood in China and Meet Lei Ming (Ray)
“This heartfelt narrative describes another culture, another landscape, another site where transness occurs spontaneously, without the ideological interference of feminist theory or LGBT agendas. Allowing an English-speaking/reading audience to witness Lei Ming’s transgender journey, Transgress Press brings us an intriguing gift. Evocative, sensitive, and real, Lei Ming bridges both genders and cultures.”
— Jamison Green, PhD, Educator, author of Becoming a Visible Man
A very special opportunity to get your copy of this Lambda Literary Finalist signed by the author
Lei Ming — Ray to his English-speaking friends — will only be in the U.S. for a few more months and there is no way to know if he will ever be able to come to the States again. This is truly a not-to-be-missed chance to meet the first known trans man to publish his memoir.
Life Beyond My Body brings an international perspective to trans issues and showcases the hardships trans people face in underdeveloped countries. What is like for a trans man to deal with public restrooms that have no walls? Navigate a culture that has never even heard the word transsexual and believes he is possessed by demons? Transition using black market testosterone? Find out June 9th at the Q Center.
