An important book by a leader in the fight for recognition of the rights of non-binary people in Canada and around the world. A difficult read at times, and sometimes a bit too earnest, but well worth the effort. (I also tried listening to the audio book, but I'm sorry to say it was more proof that authors should stick to being authors and leave narrating to the professionals.)

Me, Myself, They: Life Beyond the Binary by Joshua M. Ferguson is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late April.

Joshua themselves as being gender creative from a

In my opinion, this is a must-read for anyone who wants an authentic, human, vulnerable, and ultimately uplifting read about one person’s journey to discovering what non-binary means to them.

In a time where non-binary is coming to the forefront of gender identity discussions, this is a fantastic read for anyone looking to gain more understanding o

Excellent and poignant read that is vital to non-binary persons. A collection of thoughts and ideas, Joshua paints their life in vivid colors. Their message of love and support to everyone, especially to trans and non-binary persons, rings clear in our present and, most important, our future.
Includes a non-binary legal recognition around the world timeline, too!!

Me, Myself, They: Life Beyond the Binary besides the fact that everybody should read this book, it is most definitely a book club read and a community/family read for open discussions. Although this is their story, there are “they” who live in every family or community who have similar experiences’ and could use the support and understanding.

good luck
