- While there is a growing body of literature on transgender men's experiences, relatively little exists to document the experiences of their partners. In 'Queering Families', Carla A. Pfeffer brings these experiences to life through interviews with the group most likely to partner and form families with transgender men: non-transgender (cisgender) women.
