It is the start of the school year. At the University of Colorado at Boulder, sophomore Gabbie is cheerfully out as a male-to-female transgender person; after an isolated freshman year, she has begun making friends in the school’s gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender (GLBT) community. At Smith College in Massachusetts, neuroscience major Lucas is in the process of re-evaluating his wants and needs as a male-identified transgender person; with his senior year underway, he has begun to doubt the wisdom of further postponing the medical treatments that will make his body match his mind. At Michigan State University, graduate student and Fulbright scholar T.J. has come into his own as a female-to-male transgender person and political activist; but a tense phone call with his mother in Cyprus is a sharp reminder that his family and the Armenian community back home expect him to be Tamar. At California State University, Los Angeles, hearing-impaired freshman Raci grapples with the realities of living away from her mother as well as maintaining the high GPA that her four-year scholarship requires. Raci keeps her male-to-female transgender identity a secret on campus, and only her transgender friend and fellow student Apple knows that she wasn’t born a girl.
