Honey, Honey, Miss Thang book. Five interviews with transgender sex workers of colour by a Black Associate Professor of Criminology, who talk about their own lives, their own stories and how they got to be where they are in their lives right now.

Leon E. Pettiway, (P. University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee), is Professor Emeritus at Indiana University, Bloomington. Before his retirement, his intellectual work centered on the construction of knowledge and the manner in which Eastern and Western philosophical traditions might be integrated into criminological discourse and criminal justice practice.
