Lee, Tracey (2001) Trans(re)lations: Lesbian and female to male transsexual accounts of identity. Women’s Studies International Forum, 24 (3/4). pp. 347-357. ISSN 0277-5395/01

The following article is founded in interview based social research conducted with an opportunistic sample of British and North American lesbians and female to male transsexuals (FTMs). The interviews were concerned with their accounts of experience and identity from childhood, through adolescence to adulthood. Located in relation to a current debate regarding similarity and difference between lesbians and FTMs, the article juxtaposes the identity accounts to facilitate a comparative analysis and suggests that processes of “othering” are utilised as a means through which similar life histories are differentially experienced and accounted for.
