Ali Sands is eager to talk. Engaging her experiences as the partner of a person who transitioned from female to male, she has created a forum for public conversations. And people are listening! Ali journaled her reflections in her intriguing and candid memoir, “I Know Who You Are, But What Am I? A Partners Perspective on Transgender Love. Now in its second edition, the book offers readers an intimate view of her personal search for identity in a changing relationship.

every listener. Through her speaking platform, illuminating identity, Ali creates safe spaces for public listening.
