Jeremy Ivester is a transgender man. Thirty years ago, his parents welcomed him into the world as what they thought was their daughter. As a child, he preferred the toys and clothing our society views as masculine. In his mid-twenties, he had top surgery and began taking the hormones that would lower his voice and give him a beard, and he changed his name and pronouns. Once a Girl, Always a Boy is both Jeremy's and his family's coming-out story, told from multiple perspectives—a story of acceptance in a world not quite ready to accept.
