Confessions of a Transvestite BuddhistOn Sun, 3 April, 2016 - 23:40
Devamitra’s new book, Confessions of a Transvestite Buddhist: A Quest for Manhood was launched at the London Buddhist Centre (UK) on 18th March.
The book’s blurb asks, ”What drives a man to dress as a woman? What kind of man is a cross-dresser? Is he even a man at all, or is he something else? What exactly is a man, anyway? None of the explanations offered by psychologists, sociologists and others satisfied Devamitra… And they certainly provided no answers to the questions that troubled him, including, crucially: did transvestism square with his aspirations as a Buddhist?”
Editor’s note: Devamitra’s book is an account of his personal experiences and views as he explores transvestism in relation to a faithful and considered practice of the Dharma. As with all content and discussion on The Buddhist Centre Online, the views expressed by individual contributors and commenters are not intended to be indicative of a general Triratna position.
