Big thanks to Mel over at Decidedly Obscure Human Complaints for the heads-up on this amazing NYT article.

From Dr. Laura Erickson-Schroth’s NYT bio:

This week Dr. Laura Erickson-Schroth, who is working on “Trans Bodies, Trans Selves,” a resource guide for transgender and other gender-variant people, covering health, legal issues, cultural and social questions, history and theory, will be responding to readers’ questions about transgender life.

* First Set, April 21 »
* Second Set, April 22 »

During her last year in medical school, Dr. Erickson-Schroth chose electives in transgender medicine, transgender surgery and gender variant pediatrics, and became aware of the lack of comprehensive resources that exist for gender-variant people as they make important decisions in their lives. This compelled her to begin work on a book that would attempt to provide these resources. She is the editor of “Trans Bodies, Trans Selves,” a resource guide for transgender people, which will be published in 2011.
