John Epperson (Lypsinka) and transgender people

JJohn Epperson (better known as drag performer Lypsinka) was quoted in marketing materials for The Man Who Would Be Queen by J. Michael Bailey. These materials were prepared by Ann Merchant, Marketing Director at Joseph Henry Press, the publishing arm of the National Academies Press.

Below is the quotation excerpted:

“The feminine man maintains an outsider status that can be heartbreaking and confusing, or it can be liberating, depending on one’s ever-shifting point of view. … I applaud Bailey for attempting to disclose information on a subject that many people find discomfiting; that is, the place that resides between ‘male’ and ‘female.’ Perhaps science can lead to understanding.”
