GENDER QUEER TP A MEMOIR (MR) NEW PRINTING (04 Oct Release)
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 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.
