Andrea James was an 11-year-old boy when she first discovered the word transsexual. She found the term in a publication called “The Book of Lists,” which listed ten famous transsexuals. She tried to do some follow-up research at her local library, but she could not find any books about the topic in the card catalog. She was disappointed. But now, having completed the transition from male-to-female, she dedicates both personal and professional time filling the information void she first discovered as an 11-year-old boy.
