SC PRIDE: Book Discussion

June 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

“Beyond Magenta” by Susan Kuklin a 2015 Stonewall Honor Book

This groundbreaking work of LGBT literature takes an honest look at the life, love, and struggles of transgender teens. Join South Church Pride for a discussion facilitated by Mary Pritchard, Amie Hellauer, and Eileen Forgue.

Author and photographer Susan Kuklin met and interviewed six transgender or gender-neutral young adults and used her considerable skills to represent them thoughtfully and respectfully before, during, and after their personal acknowledgment of gender preference. Portraits, family photographs, and candid images grace the pages, augmenting the emotional and physical journey each youth has taken. Each honest discussion and disclosure, whether joyful or heartbreaking, is completely different from the other because of family dynamics, living situations, gender, and the transition these teens make in recognition of their true selves.
