Blending Genders is concerned with those who attempt to or succeed in blending various aspects of gender. The book describes personal experiences of cross-dressers and their social organization--in both "outsider" and "respectable" communities. The contributors
consider the medical framework through which gender blending is so often seen and examine the treatment afforded gender blending in literature, the press and telephone sex lines. The book concludes with a discussion of the lively debates that have taken place concerning the politics of
transgenderism in recent years and recent contributions to contemporary cultural and queer theory.
