Frye explains: "This is a collection of seven short stories that reflects many of the early struggles that my wife and I encountered as I came out of the closet as to being transgendered in the mid 1970’s. Included is a story about us being so financial strapped that we received our church’s offering of canned food one Christmas. Also included is the story about my attending law school while “out”, about my lobbying to repeal a law that made transfolks subject to being arrested, and about some of my early work in the local women’s organizations."
