Celebrating a radical frontier of sex and love within the queer experience, Gendered Hearts breaks new ground by focusing on trans writers from differently gendered perspectives. The collection includes thirty-one first-person narratives, poems, and interviews that create a raw and honest depiction of dating, sex, love, and relationships within the trans community. T Cooper shares details of loves old and new, critically acclaimed filmmaker Silas Howard discusses how writing a movie about transman Billy Tipton brought him closer to his own intimate desires, writer Max Valerio shares stories from the early days of love and transition in the 1980s, author and performer Julia Serano explains how she settled into her identity as a transwoman and a lesbian, activist Bryn Kelly offers a compelling chronicle of finding love in the face of HIV, and musician Shawna Virago offers a titillating tale of a one-night stand that ends with a diaper and a pacifier. With stories ranging from triumphant to excruciating, endearing to bittersweet, this anthology provides an authentic account of real life and real love within an often marginalized element of queer sexuality. Morty Diamond is the editor of the anthology From the Inside Out: FTM and Beyond . His performance work includes My Year In Pink and Ask A Tranny , a public performance piece on acceptance of and education on the trans experience.
