Edition Deluxe edition
Published Portland, OR : Oni Press, [2022]


Description 1 online resource (256 pages) : chiefly color illustrations
Summary 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, this graphic memoir 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, this 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. -- Provided by publisher
Notes "This special deluxe ... edition of Gender Queer features a brand-new cover, exclusive art and sketches, a foreword from ND Stevenson (Lumberjanes writer and creator of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power) and an afterword from Maia Kobabe."
