Talk: BALLS: It Takes Some to Get Some

Chris Edwards made his advertising debut in 1993 as a copywriter at Arnold Worldwide. There, he used what he learned working in advertising, along with his ever-present sense of humor, to rebrand himself and orchestrate what was quite possibly the most widely accepted and embraced gender transition of its kind–at a time when the word “transgender” didn’t exist. After an award-winning career, Chris left his Arnold post as EVP, Group Creative Director to write his memoir, BALLS: It Takes Some to Get Some, which describes his life before, during and after transition in heartfelt and hilarious detail.
