    Description

    Pocket Change Collective was born out of a need for space. Space to think. Space to connect. Space to be yourself. And this is your invitation to join us.

    "Thank God we have Alok. And I'm learning a thing or two myself." (Billy Porter, Emmy award-winning actor, singer, and Broadway theater performer)

    "When reading this book, all I feel is kindness." (Sam Smith, Grammy and Oscar award-winning singer and songwriter)

    "Beyond the Gender Binary will give readers everywhere the feeling that anything is possible within themselves" (Princess Nokia, musician and co-founder of the Smart Girl Club)

    "A fierce, penetrating, and empowering call for change." (Kirkus Reviews starred review)

    "An affirming, thoughtful read for all ages." (School Library Journal starred review)

    In Beyond the Gender Binary, poet, artist, and LGBTQIA+ rights advocate Alok Vaid-Menon deconstructs, demystifies, and reimagines the gender binary.

    Pocket Change Collective is a series of small books with big ideas from today's leading activists and artists. In this installment, Beyond the Gender Binary, Alok Vaid-Menon challenges the world to see gender not in black and white, but in full color. Taking from their own experiences as a gender-nonconforming artist, they show us that gender is a malleable and creative form of expression. The only limit is your imagination.

    Commentaires

    "There's no better time for a new conversation about the damaging effects of mainstream society's oppressive, dismissive, and silencing stance on who folks are supposed to be based on...what...? Thank God we have Alok. And I'm learning a thing or two myself." (Billy Porter, Emmy award-winning actor, singer, and Broadway theater performer)

    "This beautiful book is a beacon, just like Alok. Having Alok in my life has saved me in so many ways, and now you can have a little bit of them with you, too. When reading this book, all I feel is kindness. This is a step-by-step education on what it means to respect non-binary people. Alok is a human being who has a deep love and commitment to other human beings. They have come to us from the future to show us what life could be like if we all loved a little harder and dug a little deeper." (Sam Smith, Grammy and Oscar award-winning singer and songwriter)  

    "Beyond the Gender Binary is a literary vessel of light for those who are looking for hopefulness, honesty, and a stimulating education in the exploration of themselves. This book is a twenty-first-century survival guide for queer-identifying people of all walks of life - Alok provides a safe space of shared experiences, commitment, and love to expand the gender binary to create a brighter and more inclusive present and future. This book shares wisdom, knowledge, and the universal spirit of celebrating one's self by shattering the transphobic lens that hinders most gender non-conforming people. Beyond the Gender Binary will give readers everywhere the feeling that anything is possible within themselves, and that self-love through whatever choice of gender expression is truly attainable." (Princess Nokia, musician and co-founder of the Smart Girl Club)

    Logical fallacy throughout and very poorly argued.

    I came in as open minded as I possibly could into the book, looking to learn and understand, but from the very beginning when Alok described “men and women” as “opposite” I was put on guard. Men and women are biologically complimentary, two essential contributors to creating a human life. Alok accuses society as the oppressor and divisor, when they themselves have divided the world in their head without regard for if it is true or not. The book is filled with inconsistencies and poor logic, and I don’t care to write all of them out (the review will end up being longer than the actual book), but If this is the best non-binary ideology (and it is one) can offer, it will not convince many people.

    A Must Read or Listen.

    This is must read or listen for everyone. I finished it in two days. This opened my eyes to what needs to be considered, especially in public relations. It is also refreshing because Non-Binary people are just as adequate and valid as binary people. We must respect their pronouns and become their allies for liberation for all.

    AMAZING

    This book changed the way I see the world and how much the gender binary dictates the way we live our lives. I will be sharing this with all of my friends and look forward to advocating more for gender neutral rights, language, and law!! ❤️

    Beautiful story read by a beautiful soul

    A must listen. Both affirming and eye opening. A wonderful perspective. They shared their experience in such an articulate expansive, and inclusive manner it’s hard to not relate.

    Beautiful 💖 please give it a go.

    This is a book I wish everyone made the time to listen to. Alok’s passion, drive and history are the reason for my inspiration. They’re a warrior at their core and the greatest teacher that’s here to show us ignorant people, how to stand up for our Non-binary family.

    Informative and interesting

    I am a fan of Alok and what they are doing to raise awareness for non-binary individuals and the LGBTQIA+ community so I was super excited to give this book a listen! I was not disappointed. The book is very informative and it definitely made me think of the biases that have been ingrained into me by society. Any one wanting to become more informed about this subject without being overwhelmed should give this a read for sure!

    Wonderful, powerful, a must read!

    This book was beautiful and so educational. From start to finish, it was filled with powerful deep insights people really need to hear especially in this time and age. That, along with Alok’s soft voice, makes for an amazing audiobook. Perfect for those short on timing but want to learn a little more about this topic. Well done Alok, you are truly changing the world.
