Rosalyne Blumenstein, LCSW
Rosalyne is the real deal, transitioning in New York in the 70s. She did it
the old-fashioned way: on the streets. I especially recommend her to parents
of trans youth, any young people challenging the constructs of gender at an
early age, trans-youth coming up through the club scene, or anyone who has or
will utilize the sex industry as a way to finance their transition. And last
but certainly not least; anyone struggling with addiction and recovery issues
such as drugs and alcohol, food, and/or sex.
Rosalyne has worked in the field of addiction and recovery for the past 13
years, focusing on the LGBT communities, communities of color, the oppressed
and disenfranchised, as well as those dealing with trauma-related issues. She's
been a national consultant for many research projects funded by the federal
government focusing on Trans Health issues.
She's not only doing the work; She's been there, and she can help you find
a way to better understand the choices you make in your life.
Rosalyne's been published in psychological and scientific journals, addiction
literature, queer academia, national magazines, and newspapers. As a social
worker, Rosalyne is especially proud of her addiction and prevention work. As
a national consultant and trainer, Rosalyne has earned a reputation for her
ability to educate her audience/s. As a woman of transsexual experience, she
has taken pride in being a loud-mouthed, tell-it-like-it-is, sexually provocative
native of Brooklyn, NY.
This is not only a memoir. It's a book split into 3 parts:
BRANDED T can speak to all within the trans community if one is able to move
out of their comfort zone and truly take an introspective look as to what it
intrinsically makes you reflect upon.
BRANDED T is a book that's been used in major Universities, as a guide to addiction
and recovery issues, a book for parents of trans youth, as well as those new
to transition, the tranny admirer, the researcher, and those that are young
and new to their identity.
Branded T is a true transsexual success story. I am not sure if anyone has ever been more forthcoming and honest in a transsexual autobiography. Hers is a true story about a teenage runaway, her brushes with suicide, gender identity issues, homelessness, drug addiction, and the sex industry. She describes how recovery has helped her grow as an individual and become someone who helps other heal.
