MY HUSBAND BETTY by HELEN BOYD
[BK325]
$16.95

My Husband Betty
by Helen Boyd

6th printing
285 Pages (paper) Thunder?s Mouth, 2004

Now in its 6th printing, My Husband Betty has been nominated for a Lambda Literary Award.

My Husband Betty has been called everything from ?a standard text in gender studies? (Booklist) to ?cutting, incisive, and somewhat maddening? (Riki Wilchins, GenderPAC). It is the insider?s guide to crossdressing - a book that some crossdressers won?t give to their wives for the truths it outs.

back cover copy:
My Husband Betty is the first book to explore the relationships of crossdressing men and their female partners. Known traditionally as transvestites, men like Helen Boyd?s husband are starting to come out and win the respect of friends, family, and society - even if their behavior still baffles mental health professionals and the crossdressers themselves. Boyd explains the ?taxonomy? of the transgendered, the distinct societies within the transgendered community, the effects of the closet, sexuality, and the issues faced by the wives and girlfriends of crossdressing men. Helen?s own experience is at the heart of this book, and her story complemented and contradicted by interviews with crossdressers, drag queens, ?tranny chasers,? and other transgendered couples.

Bios: Helen Boyd and Betty Crow

Helen Boyd is the author of My Husband Betty(Thunder?s Mouth, 2004) which was nominated for a Lambda Literary Award and is now in its 6th printing. Her second book, She?s Not the Man I Married: My Life with a Transgender Husband (Seal Press, 2007), has been called ?the (im)perfect modern love story? and ?a postmodern reflection on transness.? Her blog (en)gender can be found online at www.myhusbandbetty.com.

Boyd has been running an online group for couples since 2000, and has spoken at many trans conferences, including the IFGE Conference, Tiffany Club of New England's First Event, Fantasia Fair, Southern Comfort, the Chicago Be-All, and also at special events, like Trans Issues Week at Yale University. Helen and Betty have appeared on The Dr. Keith Ablow Show and spoke about GLBT marriage on PBS? In the Life. Her writing has also appeared in anthologies edited by Matt Bernstein Sycamore and Vern Bullough.

Helen Boyd is a nom de plume for the otherwise bookish Gail Kramer. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from The City College of New York with a degree in literature and a few other awards in tow. Her other interests - a love for the films of Buster Keaton, punk rock, writing fiction, and the history of anthracite coal mining in the U.S. - have taken a backseat to her study of gender. She lives in Brooklyn with her partner Betty and their three cats.

Betty Crow is an actor and animator living in New York City with her partner, Helen Boyd, author of My Husband Betty. Since the book?s publication, Betty has appeared on PBS? In The Life and been to transgender conferences all over the country meeting thousands of trans people and their partners. An advocate for partner issues in trans relationships, she also appeared on All My Children - as herself.
