Jeg er ikke

En jente opplever en nestenulykke i New York, og brått husker hun ikke hvem hun er, hvordan og hvorfor hun har havnet der. Det eneste sporet hun har, er et sett nøkler og et krøllete brev adressert til broren som hun finner i jakkelomma.

Og så treffer hun Sam som bare gjør forvirringen enda større: “Jeg, Samuel Burns, måtte på tro og ære love at jeg aldri, aldri skulle snakke om broren din, og dette løftet har jeg tenkt å holde.”

Hva er det som er så hemmelig at hun nesten tok livet av seg?

En innsiktsfull og intens historie om det å se, om kjønnsidentitet, sannhet og løgn.

Almost perfect

Almost perfect

A small-town Missouri boy’s world is rocked when he falls for the new girl at school, and she eventually confesses that she is a biological male. Logan’s world is small, as is his mind at first, but throughout the book he grows to accept and love Sage for who—not what—she is. This remarkable book takes a hard look at the difficulties and pain experienced by young male-to-female transsexuals from an easily relatable perspective, as Julie Ann Peters did in Luna (Little, Brown, 2004). Logan is a conservative 18-year-old Everyman whose generic voice isn’t—and doesn’t need to be—anything special; although readers follow his growth, it is Sage’s story that is truly important. A remarkably «clean» book dealing with sexuality and identity, this is neither preachy nor didactic while directly challenging prejudice and intolerance. With realistic characters and situations, it is a first purchase for all high school collections, and could easily be given to middle school readers who are undaunted by its length.—Rhona Campbell, Washington, DC Public Library

My princess boy

Dyson loves the color pink and sparkly things. Sometimes he wears dresses, and sometimes he wears jeans. He likes to wear his princess tiara, even when climbing trees. He’s a Princess Boy, and his family loves him exactly the way he is.

Inspired by the author’s son—and by the author’s own initial struggles to understand his choices—this is a story about unconditional love and one remarkable family. It is also a call for tolerance and an end to bullying and judgments, and a loving reminder that the world is a brighter place when we accept people for who they are.

If you belive in mermaids

If you belive in mermaids.... don´t tell

Some things you just can’t say, even to your parents. «Dad, did you ever want to be a mermaid?» Nope. Don’t say it. Not if you’re a boy. You gotta keep it inside. Maybe thirteen-year-old Todd Winslow is the best diver at summer camp. If only diving could save him. Underwater is a much kinder world, a secret mermaid world that no one else can know about – not Dad, and definitely not Brad, the camp’s numero uno bad boy. Todd tries to fit in, playing nice with flirty model-wannabe Sylvie and shunning nature-nerd Olivia – but you can only fool people for so long. Brad is watching every move, ready to expose all that’s different about Todd. Then there’s the doll thing. And Dad finds out. How will Todd survive now?

Vi i Harry Benjamin ressurssenter jobber for personer som opplever kjønnsdyfori. Eller opplever det som veldig ofte blir omtalt på folkemunne et behov for å skifte kjønn, født i feil kropp. Noen bruker også transseksuelle, transkjønnet, trans, transperson. Dette er begreper vi ikke bruker. Disse begrepene oppleves som identitetskapende. På lik linje med andre som får en diagnose, så er ikke vi vår egen diagnose. Men vi har en diagnose.
Vi mener det er viktig at hver enkelt har en reel rett til egen definisjon. Derfor bruker vi i HBRS begreper som kjønnsdysfori, kjønnsinkongruens, kjønnsidentitetsutfordringer, kjønnsmangfold og div. andre begreper som sier hva det handler om, ikke hvem man er. Så er det opp til den enkelte hva som passer for de.
