Chloe Ting’s latest book is about her life as a transgender woman
Ting, an American author, transgender advocate and professor of sociology, published her second book last month, “The Transgender State of Mind,” which tells the story of how a transgender person has come to live in the gender that they were born with.
In an interview with NPR’s Audie Cornish, Ting spoke about her new book, how it differs from her previous work and what she hopes readers will take away from reading it.
NPR’s Rebecca Jarvis, who also has a book coming out this fall, asked Ting how her writing has changed over the years.
“I don’t really remember what I wrote as a young person, so I’m kind of trying to do that,” she said.
“The first time I wrote a book, it was a very personal, intimate piece of work.
I had this feeling that this was the kind of thing that I needed to do.”
The book has taken on a life of its own, becoming a bestseller, becoming the subject of a film and the subject matter of a documentary.
NPR is currently airing a series of conversations with transgender and gender-nonconforming people on the topic of transgender literature.
One of those conversations will take place in September, during the first-ever Gender Identity Week.
Ting is planning to talk about how her new work will help the transgender community.
“Transgender people have this huge burden of guilt and shame about what they’re feeling and doing,” Ting said.
Tinkers words were echoed by the group of people she talked to, some of whom are in their 30s and 40s, all of whom have lived in the transgender world for years.
Some of them were surprised to hear that Ting had published a book.
“It makes me very proud of her, because I’m still struggling,” said Michelle DePauw, a transgender man who has been living in California for 20 years.
But others are worried that the book may hurt the transgender people who have been the subject for her work.
“We’re just hoping that it will be a wake-up call for the community,” DePaulw said.
The Transgender State Of Mind was written in March, three months after Ting announced her diagnosis.
It’s the latest in a series that has included essays about depression and suicide.
Tings latest book, which was published last month and is now available in paperback, is focused on the life of a trans woman named Chloe.
TING’s transgender life, Tink told NPR, is different from most people’s.
It involves two different parts: Chloe as a person, and Chloe as the woman she was assigned to be.
“This book is not a portrait of a person,” Tink said.
Instead, Tinks book is the story about a transgender female being a woman.
It shows a very complicated, and in my opinion, sometimes confusing, intersection of the experiences of a transgender individual, a woman, and an individual who identifies as male. “
But there’s a lot of things in the book that I think is very important.
She also spoke about the ways in which the book reflects the way transgender people deal with issues like depression, self-harm and suicide, and the difficulties that transgender people face when they come out to their families and friends. “
What I want readers to take away is that she’s been very lucky, very well-off, and has had an amazing life.”

“One of the things I think I’ve learned is that I was really lucky in that I didn’t get bullied,” she explained.
“Because I had a supportive family and a loving partner, and I did everything right.
“That was really helpful for me.” “
She explained how she was able to make her transition in her life in the first place. “

She explained how she was able to make her transition in her life in the first place.
“That’s one of the most amazing things that I have ever been able to do.
And that was a big reason that I’ve been able — I have a very good sense of self,” she continued.
“And I’m really proud of the fact that I’m a woman and I have gender dysphoria.”
Tink also touched on some of the reasons why transgender people may feel hesitant to come out as transgender.
“There’s a very strong myth out there that we’re not really trans.
And there are a lot more people that identify as trans than we think, and we’re really lucky,” she told NPR.
“In many ways, we are.
And I think that’s really, really, very important.”
Trans people can feel that they are being told that they don’t belong, Tingle said.
But she says she is proud of that fact.
“You’re telling me that you
