Drawing on interviews with fifty transsexuals, he demonstrates that becoming a woman is a process rather than a decision. He locates transsexuals in the wider society and shows that the possibility of a range of socially invisible psycho-sexual identities other than heterosexual masculine man and heterosexual feminine woman has implications not only for understanding transsexualism, but also for how we view homosexuality.
