Gender Queer: A Memoir

By Maia Kobabe
Gender Queer: A Memoir by Maia Kobabe digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

In 2014, Maia Kobabe, who uses e/em/eir pronouns, thought that a comic of reading statistics would be the last autobiographical comic e would ever write. At the time, it was the only thing e felt comfortable with strangers knowing about em. Now, Gender Queer is here. 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 non-binary 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.

Slightly Smiling Face“This was my first graphic novel ever! I came across it as part of the oscar nominated short "The ABCs of banned books" and immediately decided I needed to read it. I think this is a very valuable read for everyone but especially those of us who have gone on a journey of trying to understand our sexuality/romance orientation and FINALLY having a word to put to things. (Also for families of non-conforming kids). The fact this isn't in every middle and high school library is a shame!”
