Inspired by what she needed but didn’t exist, Kiley May wrote a dating advice book for trans women.
Dating, relationships, love, and men in this online technologic era is ambivalent, uncertain, confusing, and mysterious as it is. But try navigating this modern romantic minefield as a transgender woman.
Layer in social stigma, bigotry, transphobia, fragile toxic masculinities, sexism, misogyny, objectification, fetishism, and the Russian roulette experience of disclosing — it’s enough to make a girl abstain. But resilient romantics are not deterred.
In this how-to memoir mashup, Kiley shares some of her premature wisdom gleaned from nearly a decade of dating and conjugating as a trans girl.
From her odyssey, she provides insights and tips to help trans women love themselves, guidance and cautionary tales in courtship, and recommendations for men attracted to trans women to develop savoir-faire and respect in wooing us.
