The purpose of this study is to explore the experiences of African American transgender college students. The study proceeds within the context of discussing external factors that might define these students’ experiences, such as the church and/or religious affiliation and the family. The impact of the family and the church, which are to a great extent highly important in the African American community, helps to begin to reveal the transsexual experience from an African American perspective. Also discussed are masculinity and gender-role issues and the influence of those two constructs on the gender identity development of African American men.
