Or, more precisely, a monk, because it turns out that being female is something of a requirement to be a nun?“Angels, Monks, and Hormones” tells the story of a young man considering taking vows and living the rest of his life tending sheep in a monastery because he thinks that, if he never sees another woman, it will cure him of his gender identity problem. During the common meal with the monks, a brother reads Jesus’ words about how everyone will be genderless in heaven, like the angels.

“I think I’ll like it here,” says Kent. “I’ve always wanted to be an angel.”When he learns that monastic life won’t make him whole, however, he must learn to live in the world, first as a man, later as a woman after undergoing hormone replacement therapy and sex reassignment surgery.Before she transitions from male to female, Kent’s father tells her that she would have a tough row to hoe. Why? Because he saw a drag queen once on Jerry Springer, and the audience hooted and howled in laughter.Whatever your interest, the stories in “Angels, Monks, and Hormones” extract powerful life lessons for everyone—regardless of gender identity—from our daily transgender experience.
