Ceyenne Doroshow was born in Park Slope, Brooklyn and raised by two very homophobic and transphobic parents. She fought very hard for her day to day survival in this world as a transgender girl. Her journey was wickedly hard but needed to build character and a back bone in this world of confusion when it comes to gender awareness or the lack thereof. People often back in the day looked away or simply closed their eyes. She finished school and graduated with a B.A. in social science. Now a grown trans lady from Brooklyn, she has been blessed to be an advocate, caseworker, program coordinator, advisor, parent, grandparent, ex-escort, lover, and friend. Her first book, Cooking in Heels, was recently funded on Kickstarter and will be published by the Red Umbrella Project in September 2012.
