Hear Janet Mock Read A Passage About 'Selling A Girlfriend Experience' As A Stripper

Having become one of the most recognizable faces in both television news and queer activism, Janet Mock is a forerunner for transgender visibility. Her new memoir, Surpassing Certainty: What My Twenties Taught Me, chronicles Mock’s journey from a college student moonlighting as a stripper to an aspiring media figure battling gender conventions.

HuffPost has an exclusive clip from Mock’s Surpassing Certainty audio book, in which she recounts her experiences as a night-club dancer. “It went way deeper than mere sexuality,” she reads. “Your duty was to be amiable, available and flirtatious. … You were selling a girlfriend experience.” 

Surpassing Certainty is now available.
