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.

Great book and I love the author! They are trying to ban this book in Texas, all the more reason to support this book. Great explanation of the gender binary. The author gives first hand accounts of their experience as a non binary person in our society today and the challenges they and we must overcome. I find the author reading the book very engaging and I like their voice.

Ummmm not so much. I read this to understand the Binary and pronoun situation, however I'm more confused now than ever. Just my opinion but I feel like he was talking in circles. #Book13of2022 #BookWorm #Whatsnext
