“This book is inspired by the pictures that Giordano Bonora, a young streetcar operator and aspiring photographer, took of Bolognas small transgender community in 1980 (although it would be more correct to speak, in this case, of proto-Transgenderism). Reproduced here for the first time, these raw and gilded images reflect–during a period in Italy characterized by subversive movements and political revolts that were not just rooted in questions of identity–attempts made by T* people at a construction of the self outside the binary logic of the genotypically XY male/genotypically XX female.” (publisher’s blurb)
