Revathi describes her life, her work in the NGO Sangama, which works with people across a spectrum of gender identities and sexual orientations and how she rose from office assistant to director in the organization. Today she is an independent activist, theatre person, actor and writer and works for the rights of transgender persons.
In the second part of the book, Revathi offers the reader an insight into one of the least talked about experiences on the gender trajectory, that of being trans men. Calling several female-to-male trans persons her ‘sons’, Revathi puts before us their moving, passionate and sometimes tragic stories of marginalization, courage, resistance and triumph.
