From cross-dressing to altering one's sex by undergoing hormone therapy and radical surgery, "gender blending" has reached new levels of popularity. Gender Blending is an up-to-date account of this compelling trend that is rapidly altering the frontiers of human sexuality. The changes occurring in this area of lifestyle research are vast and rapid. This book looks at biological, sociological, psychological, historical, anthropological, religious, and other aspects of gender blending to find common ground among researchers in all areas. By representing a unique collaboration of experts and those involved in gender blending, this groundbreaking work could spell the beginning of a sexual renaissance.

Gender Blending includes essays on transvestism (cross-dressing), gender heresy, androgyny, religion and the cross-dresser, transgender healthcare, free expression, sex change surgery, loving transvestites, gender blending in literature, virtual gender, counseling and treatment, the law and transsexuals, and much more.

Perhaps more than any other issue, Gender identity has galvanised the queer community in recent years. The questions go beyond the nature of male/female to a yet-to-be-traversed region that lies somewhere between and beyond biologically determined gender. In this groundbreaking anthology, three experts in gender studies and politics navigate around rigid, societally imposed concepts of two genders to discover and illuminate the limitless possibilities of identity. Thirty first-person accounts of gender construction, exploration, and questioning provide a groundwork for cultural discussion, political action, and even greater possibilities of autonomous gender choices.

Author:  Anne Jayne Kuipers
Publisher:  Cameleon Books, Cape Town
ISBN:  062027221X
Publishing Date:  December 2001

In her book Anne tells her full story of her metamorphosis from male to female. This is not merely a biography, but a true-life story (as Anne calls it) because this book does not tell a story to fit a certain profile, but instead takes the reader through the personal life experience of the author herself. It is precisely this, that makes this book the first of its kind.
