Thank you for allowing me to join up, I wanted to reply to this request of information for someone looking to help the CD/TG/TS/TV community by listing a few resources that may help (and provide further resources within each one). These sites and books have been a lot of help to me and many others I know, I hope they help.
http://www.tsroadmap.com/ - this site is a wonderful resource that has been of immesureable help to me and many other mtfs, with links to ftm information as well.
http://www.gendertalk.com/ - even though the radio show hasn't been on for a bit now, there is gendervision videos that come out on occaision. These folk gave a voice to general information, worries, concerns, reguardless of it's age, and had a lot of fun doing it. Also, there is a great deal of links, site listings, and news on this site...I suggest this to everyone who asks me for 'first time information' because of it's serious importance with a light hearted flow.
http://www.transfm.org/ - Ethan St. Pierre is a ftm activist with a radio show (listen here >>> http://www.live365.com/stations/ethanstp <<<, that is very similar to Gendertalk but is currently going, and therefore has current news....besides, he's an extremely fun host and has intriguing guests from activists, people in office, doctors that handle certain procedures mtf/ftm, musicians/artists, etc....
Here's a list of books that I highly reccommend for anyone wanting to know more about transgender is as an umbrella term for everyone TS/TV/CD, non-op, pre-op, post-op, cisgender....woah, so many things to know....hehe, it can seem daunting.
Try these out:
True Selves / Mildred L. Brown & Chloe Ann Rounsley / ISBN: 0-7879-0271-3 or 0-7879-6702-5 / As titled it's for families, friends, coworkers, and helping professionals and it's full of resources and excellent information.
She's Not the Man I Married & My Husband Betty / Helen Boyd / ISBN: 1-58005-193-6 or 978-1-58005-193-4 / Both books are from the perspective and heart of the wife of a transgendered person. Although it doesn't address mtf issues, it is an excellent resource for understanding how transsexualism/transgender issues impact the other person in a relationship...also full of wonderful resources and information.
...there are many more books, however the resources that are listed above will take you to such authors as Jan Morris, Jennifer Finney Boylan, Jennifer Seeley, and if you really want to have fun with it, and see the lighthearted side of crossdressing and interesting perspectives of womanhood from the eyes of a wonderful woman...Veronica Vera A.K.A. Miss Vera^^
lol, I hope I didn't overwhelm you friend...please feel free to contact me on my facebook, or email me if I can provide any further assistance to you, and therefore to my brothers and sisters of the butterfly~*
Much love, and the best of wishes...
