At the young age of 8-years old, Alana Nicole Sholar (born as Alan in Kentucky in 1961) realized something was ‘wrong.’ However, the word ‘transgender’ is NOT a household word in Kentucky.
Alan lived and worked on some of Kentucky’s now-famous thoroughbred farms (where he even trained to become a jockey), while hiding, and running from, the secret within — struggling with his difference well into his mid-30’s before he became aware there were others like him.
Determined to hide the struggle within, Alan is a fast driving, hard drinking, pill popping guitar player with a sex addiction that leads to multiple partner encounters and the consequences.
On the way to becoming Alana, with the first step being a legal name change in 2005, she imagines what it must be like to be with a man. When the opportunity presents itself she struggles with making a decision to do something that, once done, could never be undone.
Much more than just a story of gender discovery, which is powerful in and of itself, “Hung in the Middle” is a story of triumph over life’s challenges. Although the challenges may differ, Alana’s story is an encouraging resource for anyone traveling their own personal journey of self-discovery . . . and we ALL seek to discover ‘self.’
