Unseen Genders

Unseen Genders

Transsexuals, homosexuals, lesbians, cross dressers, and transgender and intersex persons share an invisibility in their performativities in, through, and across male or female stereotypes. This book explores the pathologizing effects of binary assumptions of sex and gender, of male and female. The first section of this book presents narratives from homosexuals, lesbians, cross dressers, transsexuals, and transgender and intersex persons from a range of cultures. The second addresses ways of recognizing these marginalized groups while the third suggests reconstructing gender theory beyond the binaries to allow celebration of multidimensional and contextual gender identities.
