Towards an understanding . . .

"Why do I like dressing in women's clothes?", "Why does my husband want to dress in my clothes, use my jewellery - my make-up?" These and a host of other questions are asked by transvestites themselves and by their loved ones. Public perceptions are formed by a generally unhelpful portrayal by the media, while textbooks inevitably approach the subject from a pathologising viewpoint.

This book is a collection of articles by professional writers and by participants in this much misunderstood activity. It aims to answer some of the questions in a more detailed manner than is possible on the helpline, while being non-directive and non-judgmental - and without being an apologia.
