So your partner came out as Trans, well obviously it makes no difference whatsoever to you because of love and rainbows, and yall live happily ever after...except things don't really work out that way. When your partner comes out you're not only learning more about them, you're learning more about yourself. You want to be there and support them but you might not know what gender dysphoria is, or who to talk to about what their transition means for you and your identity. The Trans Partner Handbook is a sincere and honest guide on topics from coming out, mental health, sex and more, featuring first-hand accounts of successful relationships. This book has practical advice for both partners through the transition process.
Individuals who transition from one gender to another are often in some degree of a relationship, and over 55% of these relationships endure through the transition process.
While more resources are emerging for trans people themselves, there is very little information available for their partners. Through first-hand accounts and vignettes of successful partnerships, this book presents detailed descriptions of everything involved in the transition process, with specific guidance for those supporting a partner in transition. Topics include disclosure, mental health, coming out, loss and grief, sex and sexuality and the legal, medical and social practicalities of transitioning. In this essential guide, people whose partners are across the transgender spectrum speak out on their own experiences with personal advice and support for others.
