The goal of this research is to further examine transgender identified persons who have taken steps to either socially or physically transition from female-to-male and the space that they occupy within Western culture. This project is designed to focus on the FTM experience due to their current lack of visibility in both academic research and scholarship, as well as in the social world, particularly within the United States. Gender performance, community, and (in)visibility among FTM transgender identities and the public/private spaces that they accommodate is explored through interviews that have been conducted with five self-identified trans men.
