There is a saying in the gender community that goes something like this: "Sex is what's between the legs. Gender is what's between the ears." For many transgenders, life is a quest for harmony between what the mind, body and spirit say you are. Traps abound. Binary (this and that) thinking, traditional gender roles, religion, the need to belong somewhere. Is the transgender blessed, cursed, or natural? Most people don't feel the need to go anywhere near these questions. Some people take their own lives over them. The mental and emotional landscape that makes up Jackie Northam's world, has nothing to do with drag queens, parody, or female impersonation. In fact, it has nothing to do with anyone but Jackie Northam. The pieces that make up the picture of his gender puzzle are different in the lives of other transgenders. Different pieces. Different pictures. Same theme. On the other hand, Jackie's quest for a reason and a way to live resonates with all of the great identity quests lived on this hard rock turning in infinity.
