Ivan Coyote is a celebrated trans storyteller whose previous books include Gender Failure (with Rae Spoon) and One in Every Crowd, a collection for LGBT youth.Tomboy Survival Guide is a funny and moving memoir told in stories, in which Ivan recounts the pleasures and difficulties of growing up a tomboy in Canada's north, and how they learned to embrace their tomboy past when they later identified as dyke and finally as trans.

Ivan writes movingly about many firsts?the first time they were mistaken for a boy; the first time they purposely discarded their bikini top so they could join the boys at the local swimming pool; and the first time they were chastised for using the women's washroom. Ivan also explores their years as a "baby butch," dealing with new infatuations and old baggage, and life as a trans adult, in which they offer advice to young people while seeking guidance from others. And for tomboys in training, there's directions on building your very own unicorn trap.

Tomboy Survival Guide warmly recounts Ivan's transformation from a diffident yet free-spirited tomboy into a confident, self-assured trans person. These heartfelt, funny, and moving stories are about the culture of differencea "guide" to being true to one's self.

Ivan Coyote is the award-winning author or co-author of ten books, and the creator of four short films as well as three CDs that combine storytelling with music. Ivan lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
