Book Club: Gender Queer

Maia’s intensely cathartic autobiography charts eir journey of self-identity, which includes the mortification and confusion of adolescent crushes, grappling with how to come out to family and society, bonding with friends over erotic gay fanfiction, and facing the trauma and fundamental violation of pap smears. Started as a way to explain to eir family what it means to be nonbinary and asexual, Gender Queer is more than a personal story: it is a useful and touching guide on gender identity—what it means and how to think about it—for advocates, friends, and humans everywhere. Read a preview on Maia’s page, here: https://redgoldsparkspress.com/projects/6926504 Join us for our every-other-week graphic novel book club for tea and sweets and this amazing read!
