Thomas Page McBee’s Lambda award-winning memoir, Man Alive, was named a best book of 2014 by NPR Books, BuzzFeed, Kirkus and Publisher's Weekly. His second book, Amateur, a reported memoir about learning how to box to understand masculinity’s tie to violence, was published in August to wide acclaim and was named a best book of 2018 by many publications, including the London Times, BuzzFeed and Book Riot. McBee , who transitioned from female to male, was the first transgender man to box in Madison Square Garden and has experienced first-hand the gap between who we want to be as an inclusive society and who we actually are. McBee shares the truth about gender through his eyes and tells us all what we can do to balance the scales.
