“ Published in 1985 and authored by L. Sullivan, “Information for the Female-to-Male Crossdresser and Transsexual” is a handbook that provides general advice for those who identify along the female-to-male spectrum.

Sullivan, if you are not aware, is often regarded as the first out transgender man who identified as gay. The Digital Transgender Archive has extensive papers about Sullivan, documenting his life, transition, and work, which you can find here.
