'Essential reading for anyone wishing to learn more about the wonderful diversity of humans.' - The Independent

What does it mean to be non-binary in the 21st Century?

Our gender identity is impacted by our personal histories; the cultures, communities and countries we are born into; and the places we go and the people we meet. But the representation of contemporary non-binary identities has been limited, until now.

Pushing the narrative around non-binary identities further than ever before, this powerful collection of essays represents the breadth of non-binary lives, across the boundaries of race, class, age, sexuality, faith and more.

Leading non-binary people share stories of their intersecting lives; how it feels to be non-binary and neurodiverse, the challenges of being a non-binary pregnant person, what it means to be non-binary within the Quaker community, the joy of reaching gender euphoria.

This thought-provoking anthology shows that there is no right or wrong way to be non-binary.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In a world that at large still doesn't recognise non-binary gender identities, a book like this is incredibly vital and insightful. An important part of moving the conversation forward. -- Owl, film maker, writer and campaigner
A powerful collection that will bolster generations to come, and help educate the masses about the diversity of gender identity. -- Fox Fisher, film maker, artist and campaigner
At the heart of this book is the recognition of multiple factors which intersect with gender to shape experiences of being non-binary. It is these personal and nuanced perspectives which make this book so significant. Each and every chapter shares a narrative which is alive with idiosyncratic personality. -- Dr Katherine Hubbard, Lecturer, University of Surrey * The Psychologist *

This beautifully curated collection of essays is a welcome tonic in a cultural climate that seems hellbent on misunderstanding and misrepresenting those who do not fall into gender binaries.
Some writing on gender can often be inaccessible and academic, so it was a pleasure to read a collection of essays that were highly personal, thoughtful and immensely insightful. From "gender euphoria" to "radical softness", working through each contribution felt like having an illuminating conversation with the most informed and thoughtful person you know.
Essential reading for anyone wishing to learn more about the wonderful diversity of humans.

-- Joanna Whitehead * The Independent *
