Originally from Des Moines, IA, Terry Dickelman is an activist working in the field of mental health, who now calls Minnesota home. In this oral history, he recounts early childhood experiences of gender awareness; the complexities surrounding language and coming out prior to a lot of awareness about transgender people; challenges in his earlier stages of transition; the complexities of passing, and his perspectives on transphobia within lesbian, gay, and bisexual communities.
