Don’t Call Me Ma’am

A Transgender Story of Living in a World Without Labels

About Shelley’s Book

Shelley began to realize that a simple tip card was just the beginning. That realization evolved into Shelley’s fourth book, Don’t Call Me Ma’am: A Transgender Story of Living in a World Without Labels.

In this highly personal book, Shelley shares an inspiring story of the journey from coming up with a simple idea to coming out as a transgender person. “The hope of the story is to share a vision of a world with no labels,” Shelley says, “where human beings live with understanding, cooperation, and acceptance — and where who we are on the inside is not limited by artificial labels.”

Part autobiography, part memoir, part educational tips, Don’t Call Me Ma’am will speak to anyone who has ever felt limited, misunderstood or isolated by labels and to those who care about them.
