On Being a Transgender American

“I spent the first half of my life being afraid,” says Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of the bestselling memoir of transgender experience, She’s Not There, “and the second half telling people to be brave.” Boylan, who’s also known as the “voice of reason” on TV’s “I am Cait,” talks about living life as a father for six years, a mother for twelve, and neither for a few years in between.
