Summary:
From the Publisher: Although the term "transgender" itself has achieved familiarity only within the past decade, this authoritative collection of articles demonstrates that the study of behaviors, bodies, and subjective identities which contest common Eurocentric notions of gender has a history stretching back at least to the early 20th century. Transgender studies is the latest area of academic inquiry to grow out of the exciting nexus of queer theory, feminist studies, and the history of sexuality. Because transpeople challenge our most fundamental assumptions about the relationship between bodies, desire, and identity, the field is both fascinating and contentious. The Transgender Studies Reader puts between two covers fifty influential texts with new introductions by the editors that, taken together, document the evolution of transgender studies in the English-speaking world. By bringing together the voices and experience of transgender individuals, doctors, psychologists, and academically-based theorists, this volume will be a foundational text for the transgender community, transgender studies, and related queer theory.

Summary:
Full film record shot in north central Afghanistan in a mountain village near Mazar. Shots include: scenes in the village marketplace; a large circular gathering of men by the river to witness and participate in village wrestling matches; individual wrestling matches: these begin with contestants circling inside the enclosed gathering, shaking hands, and then sparring for a tie-up; wrestlers grab each others clothing much in the fashion of judo; the objective is apparently to throw one's opponent to his back in a clean move. When this occurs a supporter rushes out and hoists the victorious competitor upon this back, running with him around the circle. Scenes of six or seven matches and also scenes of festivities featuring dance by man dressed in woman's garb; music played on string harp-like instrument; socializing among men and boys.

During its heyday, the Shamrock Bar in Bluefield, West Virginia was a gathering place for gays and lesbians. The photographer reported in March 2003, before donating this collection, that Miss Helen Compton, proprietor of the Shamrock, had died and the establishment had been closed.
Carol Burch-Brown is Professor of Art and Humanities at Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia, and is a photographer, painter, and musician. Photographer and co-author with David Rigsbee, Trailers, University Press of Virginia, 1996.
Summary:
Carol Burch-Brown's photographs (200 photoprints, mostly silver gelatin, but including a few digital prints), copies of tape-recorded interviews (31, on 26 compact discs), and transcripts of interviews (3 volumes plus a compact disc containing Word files) made at the Shamrock Bar, Bluefield, West Virginia, 1997-2000 (photoprints made in 2003), documenting a working class "gay" bar. Photographs include "drag" performances and other activities at the bar. A colleague of the photographer, Ann Kilkelly, is shown in costume in some of the photographs. The project was later entitled "It's Reigning Queens in Appalachia" by the photographer.
