In 50 self-searching, witty, and moving essays, letters, and poems, readers of Love, Always hear from those who often receive little airtime in popular culture: The partners & spouses of transgender people. In this first-of-its kind collection, we catch glimpses of love, strife, and growth from those who witness and support gender transition, even as they themselves are going through their own transition in seeing gender, labels, and their own selves anew.

Helen Boyd is the author of My Husband Betty and She’s Not the Man I Married
