the GENDER book
by hunter rook (they/them), Jay Mays
and a whole big, beautiful community
the GENDER book is a gender 101 for everyone. Follow the adventures of Boston’s personal gender exploration in the GENDER book, a colorful, all-ages visual primer on the world of gender. You’ll meet along the way new friends: drag queens and kings, intersex folks, genderqueer individuals, and others under the transgender umbrella. They’ll introduce you to new and familiar topics in a way that is accessible, nonjudgmental, and fun! You’ll appreciate the countless hours of research, more than 200 questionnaires, and dozens of one-on-one interviews with members of the communities depicted. The result represents an agreement of many diverse community voices and a huge step forward in the world of gender education.
“A beautifully illustrated guide to the infinite possibilities of human identification. It’s interactive, patient, funny, and intersectional” Cara Giaimo, Autostraddle
