Gay and Lesbian Studies Whether it's a 14-year-old waiting for her first Transexual Menace T-shirt in the mail, a lesbian in a butch-femme relationship reflecting on the subversive power of being an ""invisible"" femme, or a female-to-male transsexual singing the praises of his Colt .45, the contributors to GenderQueer: Voices from Beyond the Sexual Binary report on life in the gray area between genders and suggest that those genders aren't as self-evident as they appear. Edited by writer Joan Nestle (A Restricted Country); Riki Wilchins (Read My Lips), director of the gender advocacy group GenderPAC; and Brooklyn Public Library librarian Clare Howell, the anthology includes 30 first-person testimonies from writers and activists like Sylvia Rivera, Cheryl Chase and Ethan Zimmerman.
