KY Transgender Author, Alana Sholar, Releases "Hung in the Middle: A Journey of Gender Discovery"

Raised and still living in the small town of Versailles, Alana Nicole Sholar releases the story of her experience of being born in 1961 as a transgender individual in Kentucky--a time and a place where such things were never talked about--or admitted--not even to oneself.

Online PR News – 09-September-2012 – Versailles/Kentucky – “Hung in the Middle: A Journey of Gender Discovery” is a memoir by Kentucky transgender author, Alana Nicole Sholar, published by EWH Press and released in May 2012.

Alana Nicole is a storyteller in the rich tradition of the rural Midwest. She pulls no punches as she shares a very frank and honest portrayal of her bittersweet journey of struggle with gender identity, sexuality, self-acceptance, and love.

We each face life’s challenges. Although the challenges may differ, Alana’s story is a wonderfully uplifting and encouraging resource for anyone traveling their own personal journey of self-discovery.

“Hung in the Middle” is so much more than just a story of gender discovery, which is powerful in and of itself. It is also one of those familiar—yet always irresistible—stories about falling in love with someone inaccessible, but never giving up.
