Leitis In Waiting

Leitis in Waiting is the story of Joey Mataele and the Tonga leitis,
an intrepid group of native transgender women fighting a rising tide
of religious fundamentalism in their South Pacific Kingdom. With
unexpected humour and extraordinary access to the Kingdom’s
royals and religious leaders, this emotional journey reveals what it
means to be different in a society ruled by tradition, and what it
takes to be accepted without forsaking your culture.
