I did a follow-up interview with my old friend Brian Belovitch – who I knew in the ’80s as trans actress/party girl/cabaret chanteuse Tish Gervais – and who has since retransitioned to Brian. His new book Transfigured tells the story about his journey “from boy to girl to woman to man.” The book is beautifully written – at turns poignant, funny, and often incredibly harrowing – an instant classic of the “survivor” genre. Below, we talk about our shared history, the fluidity of gender, and how he arrived at self-actualization. Fascinating stuff.
