The next-generation Stone Butch Blues--a contemporary memoir of gender awakening and a classic tale of first love and self-discovery.

When Nina Krieger first moved to San Francisco, she aspired to be a "capital L Lesbian" and surrounded herself with affluent, sporty, feminine lesbian friends. But when she moves to the Castro neighborhood, Nina finds herself thrust into a whole different world, full of people she sees as weirdos and freaks--people who blur the line between woman and man, who identify as queer, who defy everything Nina thought she knew about gender and identity. Despite herself, Nina is drawn to this new world. Before long, all her notions about gender are thrown out the window as she forges a truer path toward self-discovery.
