Out of the Closet

Out of the Closet

Out of the Closet is an uplifting novel about accepting people who are different. Five friends—a transsexual war veteran and P.O.W.; a transgender oppressed in a small AZ town; a Christian cowboy; a Muslim crossdresser from Afghanistan; a Jewish lesbian teacher from TX—enjoy San Francisco's Pride festivities and take lessons learned back to that small town in AZ where they overcome oppressions.Out of the Closet is a positive, uplifting novel about people who have the courage to stand with friends who are different, while continuing to maintain their own identity as well. Five people—a transsexual war veteran and P.O.W.; a transgender facing oppresions in a small, Arizona town; a Christian, natal cowboy who is accepting; a Muslim crossdresser from Afghanistan, who now lives in San Francisco; and a Jewish, lesbian school teacher from Texas—become friends, participate in San Francisco’s annual Pride parade and festivities, and take their lessons back to that small town in Arizona, where they overcome issues in a way far larger than they could have expected.The emphasis in Out of the Closet is not only acceptance of self as transgender, but also on people who claim to be supportive, who claim to be friends, but who keep the transgender away from their other friends. This kind of behavior, which may well be recognized as hurtful by people for other minorities, is often considered valid regarding transpeople. Out of the Closet is an example of very different people who accept and respect each other without giving up their own identity as they do so.While the subject matter is mature and sophisticated, about transpeople, and while there is romance, the material is presented in such a way that, I believe, if it were a film it could be shown on primetime television. Language is not harsh. Sex is not explicit, though romance is, as well as the love of friends and family.As stated on the Copyright page, all Aimee Norin novels may be shared with friends or students, in university settings, or for other personal use if the novel is kept together in its entirety.

Falling in Love

Falling in Love

A Spencer Tracy/Katharine Hepburn style romance between a transsexual woman and a transgender man, both pilots, with different ideals, who play, fight and argue on their way to falling in love at a major air show.A Spencer Tracy/Katharine Hepburn style romance between a transsexual woman and a transgender man, both pilots, who play, fight and argue on their way to falling in love at a major air show.Lourdes is a Hispanic American, long term transsexual, ashamed of who she is. Desperately needing to be as female as any other, her standards are high, too high to be achieved, so she lives in anguish, hating anything that would diminish her as she sees it.Jim, a well-adjusted, well-liked transgender man whom Lourdes meets at the air show, has had issues in his own life and doesn’t need her to add to them. Where Lourdes initially blasts him hard, his gentle nature wins her over, and in the end, she succumbs to him. He becomes her savior. This is her growth process.Falling in Love has one of the two most beautiful endings in my novels to date. While it sizzles at times, Falling in Love is represented in such a way that, I believe, if it were made into a film, could be shown on prime-time broadcast television. Lourdes and Jim are personally unwilling to use harsh language, and while they are eventually open with each other, one can sense they are modest in how they share their intimate moments. The emphasis is on romance, not sex. It’s on watching them fight through their issues to fall in love, not on anger or divisiveness.Falling in Love is set in the world of flight. Cliquish terminology and phrasing are used, though explained, throughout. If you’re a pilot of light general aviation airplanes, you will feel at home in the novel. If you’re not a pilot, then you may fit right in with those who are by the time you’re done reading.
