Description

Born a male, or more appropriately, born in a male body, Sophia "Sophie" Jean Featherwind felt disconnected physiologically at a young age. Named Robert, after her father, Sophie says in her memoir, Freeing Hummingbirds: How I Learned to Embrace Myself, that one of the most difficult things a transgender individual struggles with is his or her name. "The names we are born with correspond to our birth gender and cannot be used in today's rigid society..." The self-published book traces Sophie's transitioning from 2007 to 2010; she incorporates childhood difficulties, a marriage to a woman and their two children in an enlightening and poetic memoir. --QSaltLake
