I need to do more reading on transitioning from male to female for one of my characters. Does anyone know of good websites or books that can help. I’m writing a teenage character (18) who came out as transgendered to her male best friend at about 13 (do you say “come out”?). She’s in therapy, a therapist who deals with young people in the process of transition. She is on hormones but she’s not exactly getting them legally since Medicaid wont cover them and she has a part-time job. She’s about to go under the knife for breast augmentation, maybe.
She’s actually one of the most interesting characters I’ve ever written but she’s surely opened my eyes to how ignorant I am on transitioning and transgendered issues. Any help would be truly appreciated : )
