Prequel to Sam’s best-selling Trunky: Transgender Junky, Sugar is a darkly comedic account of his earlier years in which transition from female to male was unthinkable before the 1990s.

The free-spirited and remarkable young couple had met and fallen in love the previous summer while working at a world-renowned outdoor program for women. During their final days in the park, they descended the narrow remnants of a trail…
