SKU: Q913713
"Life Without Pockets – My Long Journey into Womanhood" is an intimate true story chronicling Carla Ernst’s journey from male to female. It is an intensely personal story written to help all audiences better understand not only about gender
dysphoria, identity, and transformation, but how to live an authentic, fulfilling, and productive life, despite marginalization and prejudice.
Carla offers her take on what it’s like to “transition” in the context of societal expectations, while candidly revealing the mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and social impact that gender change can have on a human being.
In response to the countless questions that Carla—like most transgender people—receives about being transgender, the book is written in an FAQ style. She uses her personal experiences to convey the unique challenges of being transgender while providing a broader framework of the many influences that gender has on the individual and people around her.
The book is also a practical 21st-century guide to living a life based not on the expectations of others, but on the continuing revelation and brave embrace of who we indeed are.
Whether you are on that journey yourself or are a loved one of a transgender person, "Life Without Pockets" is a compelling narrative that will transform the way you think and feel about transgender. If the book prevents just one suicide due to trans-bullying, then the effort will be considered a success.
Through her life experiences, and by completing this book, Carla has found her own sense of joy, peace, and happiness. In these pages, you are sure to find insight, laughter, and perhaps a few tears. But most importantly, a clear view of the road less traveled.
