Herausgeber: Micah Rajunov, Scott Duane. Titel: Nonbinary. Untertitel: Memoirs of Gender and Identity. Verlag: Columbia University Press, New York, USA. Erscheinungsjahr: 2019. ISBN: 978-0-231-18533-2. Bindung: Softcover, 250 Seiten. Preis: ca. 20 €.



The voices in this anthology highlight our experiences are shaped by a deeply entrenched gender binary. Powerful first-person narratives break away from mainstream portrayals of gender diversity, cutting across lines of age, race, ethnicity, ability, class, religion, family, and relationships. Thirty authors illustrate what life could be if we allowed the rigid categories of „man“ and „woman“ to loosen and bend.

„Nonbinary is a beautiful collection, filled with moving and personal stories from life outside the binary. Reading it felt like coming home to a community I’d always longed for. Folks from all across the gender spectrum should dive into these gorgeous insights and revelations about living a life of authenticity.“   Jill Soloway, creator of Transparent

„This is the anthology I’ve always yearned for, but never realized could be real. Nonbinary blows open the core of the thing, goes straight for the heart, burrows deep and then some. In a world that insists trans and nonbinary adopt consistent, easy-to-digest messaging about who we are, this anthology stands bravely above the noise, boldly declaring our multiplicity as our beauty, our contradiction as our multifaceted shimmer.“   Jacob Tobia, author of Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story

„A thoughtfully assembled collection of fresh and alert writing about the beautiful past, complex present, and dazzling future of nonbinary people and identities. Nonbinary contains the kind of specific stories, redolent of truth and feeling, that open a door for anyone, of any gender, to walk through and be engaged (and entertained, too!).“   S. Bear Bergman, author of Blood, Marriage, Wine, & Glitter

„These memoirs are sure to captivate and comfort the nonbinary community and open the eyes of those who have had little reason to question the gender binary.“   Charlie McNabb, author of Nonbinary Gender Identities: History, Culture, Ressources

Nonbinary is timely, wide-ranging, interesting, readable, and relatable. This will be a great primer for parents, teachers, doctors, and anyone else who wants to understand the nonbinary community.“   Jen Manion, Amherst college

„Nonbinary makes a profound contribution through an insistence upon increasing explosure to the concepts and lived experiences of contemporary queer people and ideas. This book will do amazing things.“   K. W. Mott, Seton Hall University
