Researcher and author Michelle Serena tackles the controversial subject of transgenderism and gender dysphoria in her new audiobook, Gender Dysphoria. With all the recent information in the news on transgender people, this book comes at the right time. I Am Cait, the new show about the life of Caitlyn Jenner as she transitions into her new world separate from Bruce Jenner is a startling reminder that this dysphoria is real and that individuals who are going through this have options - and they can have bright lives in front of them when they find self-acceptance and a community of supportive friends. Gender Dysphoria is not a comprehensive book nor a substitution for medical advice. It is a guide for family and friends who are curious about the subject and need to get a handle on what´s going on with a loved one who is transgender. It´s also a helpful book for school-aged people who may have to report on transgender studies or better understand their fellow students. The book helps the listener determine what transgenderism is, the possible biological reasons for it, possible treatments, and the various attributes of it. Listeners will find useful information on the topic and hopefully receive the type of understanding that will enable the transgender people in their lives to have a point of departure for positive discussion. The book discusses male-to-female and female-to-male transitions and the hormonal and surgical options that many of them will undertake. It also goes into the risks associated with the various treatment options and for this reason is also a good resource for family members who have been asked to provide emotional support. 1.

Für Fans der Tribute von Panem und Die Bestimmung gibt es jetzt eine einmalige neue Geschichte: Ein giftiger Fluss trennt die Welt, in der die neunzehnjährige Violet Bates lebt, nach Geschlechtern. Im Osten herrschen die Frauen, im Westen die Männer. Willkommen in den Ländern Matrus und Patrus. Seit ihr geliebter kleiner Bruder verschwunden ist, wird Violets Leben von einer Wut kontrolliert, die sie zu unterdrücken versucht. Sie war bereits eine Gefangene ihrer eigenen Nation, doch nun ist sie für ihre Verbrechen zum Tode verurteilt worden. Doch eine Entscheidung könnte ihr das Leben retten: Ins Königreich von Patrus zu gehen, wo die Männer herrschen und Frauen sich zu unterwerfen haben. Für ein widersinniges Mädchen wie Violet ist alles in einem Patriarchat gefährlich. Sie darf die Regeln nicht brechen, wenn sie am Leben bleiben will. Doch Regeln zu folgen gehörte noch nie zu ihren Stärken und als sie in größere Gefahr gerät, als sie es jemals hätte ahnen können, sieht sich Violet gezwungen, Vieles in diesem verbotenen Königreich aufzugeben... sogar eine verbotene Liebe. In einer Welt, die nach Geschlechtern getrennt ist, können nur die Stärksten überleben... 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Mera Mayde.

´´I know I´m not a man...and I´ve come to the conclusion that I´m probably not a woman, either.... The trouble is, we´re living in a world that insists we be one or the other.´´ With these words, Kate Bornstein ushers listeners on a funny, fearless, and wonderfully scenic journey across the terrains of gender and identity. On one level, Gender Outlaw details Bornstein´s transformation from heterosexual male to lesbian woman, from a one-time IBM salesperson to a playwright and performance artist. But this particular coming-of-age story is also a provocative investigation into our notions of male and female, from a self-described nonbinary transfeminine diesel femme dyke who never stops questioning our cultural assumptions. Gender Outlaw was decades ahead of its time when it was first published in 1994. Now, some 20-odd years later, this book stands as both a classic and a still-revolutionary work - one that continues to push us gently but profoundly to the furthest borders of the gender frontier. 1.

John is a hard working construction worker just trying to do his job, but when he shows up at the worksite to find a mob of angry protestors, that becomes quite difficult. John eventually learns that the location of this under construction apartment complex was once an ancient fertility pool, but when the protestors are cleared out, he still has a job to do. Unfortunately, John doesn’t make the connection between this ancient pond and the supernatural flooding of his construction site until it’s too late, and suddenly this muscular man finds himself in the body of a beautiful young woman. Now, overwhelmed by hormones and hornier than he’s ever been, this gender-swapped construction worker is about to explore the hardcore fantasies he never knew he had. 1. Language: English.

One of the most talked-about scholarly works of the past 50 years, Judith Butler´s Gender Trouble is as celebrated as it is controversial. Arguing that traditional feminism is wrong to look to a natural, ´´essential´´ notion of the female, or indeed of sex or gender, Butler starts by questioning the category ´´woman´´ and continues in this vein with examinations of ´´the masculine´´ and ´´the feminine.´´ Best known however, but also most often misinterpreted, is Butler´s concept of gender as a reiterated social performance rather than the expression of a prior reality. Thrilling and provocative, few other academic works have roused passions to the same extent. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emily Beresford.

BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard. The tradition of excellence continues in this fast and funny production of Twelfth Night when all the world is turned on its head and all authority usurped, when by civil misrule girls become boys and women lust after women. Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Maloney, Josette Simon, Anne-Marie Duff, Full Cast.
