“When reading this book, all I feel is kindness.”–Sam Smith, Grammy and Oscar award-winning singer and songwriter
“Beyond the Gender Binary will give readers everywhere the feeling that anything is possible within themselves”–Princess Nokia, musician and co-founder of the Smart Girl Club
In Beyond the Gender Binary, poet, artist, and LGBTQIA+ rights advocate Alok Vaid-Menon deconstructs, demystifies, and reimagines the gender binary.
Pocket Change Collective is a series of small books with big ideas from today’s leading activists and artists. In this installment, Beyond the Gender Binary, Alok Vaid-Menon challenges the world to see gender not in black and white, but in full color. Taking from their own experiences as a gender-nonconforming artist, they show us that gender is a malleable and creative form of expression. The only limit is your imagination.
