The East Side Freedom Library invites you to How to Understand Your Gender: A Book Event with Co-Authors Alex Iantaffi and Meg-John Barker on Friday, October 27 @ 7:00PM.
Have you ever questioned your own gender identity? Do you know somebody who is transgender or who identifies as non-binary? Do you ever feel confused when people talk about gender diversity?
How to Understand Your Gender: A Practical Guide for Exploring Who You Are is a down-to-earth guide for anybody who wants to know more about gender, from its biology, history and sociology, to how it plays a role in our relationships and interactions with family, friends, partners and strangers. It looks at practical ways people can express their own gender, and will help you to understand people whose gender might be different from your own. With activities and points for reflection throughout, this book will help people of all genders engage with gender diversity and explore the ideas in the book in relation to their own lived experiences.

“The authors have made adequate time for Indigenous and Two Spirit identities and people. Talking about decolonizing the gender narrative in a way that traces back to the very roots of the first peoples in a place is something that is crucial in providing understanding, but is often ignored or overlooked. Hands down, I will recommend this book for anybody looking to learn more about gender and sexuality. It’s an amazing resource for ALL, regardless of identity, experience or knowledge. I fell head over heels with this book, and I can’t wait to shout it from the rooftops!” -Katrina Werchouski, Director of Indigenous Cultures Center, Northland College
