Gender Queer: A Memoir
Discussion and Signing
Wednesday, July 17th
7 – 9pm
Please join us in welcoming Maia Kobabe (and colorist Phoebe Kobabe) for a discussion and signing of eir memoir, Gender Queer!
Let us know you’re coming!
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. – Lion Forge
