An introductory manifesto to trans and non-binary equality
“Don’t Ask About My Genitals is part introduction to our fabulous community, part commentary on our lived experiences in a binary world and what that means for us, part guide on ways that allies can help our community in the battle for equality and it is also part my story, presented here to help other young genderqueer and non-binary people who might otherwise think they are all alone.” - Owen Hurcum
Whilst this book does not cover every aspect of the trans and non-binary community, and the diverse and vibrant lives they live, it will leave you more knowledgeable and supportive. Education is the enemy of discrimination after all.
Seonaid Francis, Editorial Director of Black Bee Books says, “This challenging, informative and groundbreaking book is a must read for anyone with an interest in wanting to expand their knowledge and understanding of the trans and non-binary community, and people who believe in equality and diversity, and even more so for those who oppose it.”
As hate crimes and discrimination against the trans and non-binary community continue to rise, this ground-breaking work, from politician and activist Owen Hurcum, is more than timely and has the potential to make a real positive impact on the perception of the trans and non-binary community.
The title of this book derives from the question faced almost everyday by some trans and non-binary people, and the book itself is an introductory work about the non-binary and wider trans community, aimed primarily at people who might want to learn more about the trans and non-binary community and those who might be questioning their own gender.
