Entering Transmasculinity will have broad appeal for both scholars and people interested in the complexities of transmasculine identity and transgender lives more generally. Each chapter provides a glimpse into transmasculine discourse and the ways in which the Internet and social media sites provide platforms for transmasculine people. Additionally, Heinz is careful to not present transmasculine people as homogenous: some make sense of their identity through mainstream discourse, while others push back and question the discourses they encounter. There is much to applaud for Heinz’s massive interdisciplinary endeavor—and he is successful in that readers will be left wanting more.

Entering Transmasculinity is a holistic study of the intersecting and overlapping discourses that shape transgender identities. In the book, matthew heinz offers an examination of mediated and experienced transmasculine subjectivities and aims to capture the apparent contradictions that structure transmasculine experience, perception, and identification. From the relationship between transmasculinity’s emancipatory potential and its simultaneously homogenizing implications, to issues of gender-queerness, sexual minorities, normativity, and fatherhood, Entering Transmasculinity is the first book to synthesize these disparate areas of academic study in the context of digital constructions of the transmasculine self.

 

matthew heinz is dean of the Faculty of Social and Applied Sciences and professor in the School of Communication and Culture at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia.
