The Book of Non-Binary Joy is full of wit, kind advice, encouragement, fun and wisdom! Let Ben take you by the hand for this fabulous ride into the expansiveness of our genders and communities, you will not regret it. -- Alex Iantaffi, author of Gender Trauma, How to Understand Your Gender, and Life Isn't Binary
I'm so happy this book exists. As a trans man, it's a genuinely useful resource and as a trans person, it's a breath of fresh air for the focus to be on our ample, multi-faceted joy instead of simply the pain we experience at the hands of cis society. -- Freddy McConnell, writer and journalist
The Book of Non-Binary Joy is just that. JOY. Every page is packed full of love, acceptance, encouragement and more. Ben's wit, charm and warmth leap off the page like a big friendly hug. I know this book will help LGBTQIA+ people on their gender journey and discovery. Thank you Ben, from one of them. -- Dom&Ink
This book speaks directly to the non-binary reader, because lets face it there aren't many that do, but rest-assured it is for everyone. To read, to learn, to understand better another persons perspective is incredibly powerful. This book debunks common misconceptions and gives insightful and useful information that we all need. They discuss trauma and the wider context of living in a world that often doesn't support or accept you with a beautifully delicate, light hand - giving the reader a real sense of pride and joy that is often neglected when talking about these issues. -- Natalie Lee (Style Me Sunday)
Honest, incisive and responsive writing. A commanding and nuanced conversation of representation, allyship and identity... a book I wished I'd had in my twenties. -- Jules Von Hep, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist
As someone who has, within the last year or so, started that journey into my gender identity and everything that surrounds it, I loved this book. It was reassuring and helpful while refraining from simply telling you everything will be okay. It's great for those like me who have already been on their journey and want the reassurance that they're "doing it right". The author's voice really shines through with a pervasive sense of style that I enjoyed. -- NetGalley Reviewer
This collection of insights provides a really wonderful overview of what it means to be non-binary, as a non-binary person myself I felt the love pouring out from the author and their words brought me so much joy. -- NetGalley Reviewer
This book is a glorious and necessary look at finding liberation and happiness in who you are. -- Rachel Thompson * Mashable *
