Gender Failure by Rae Spoon & Ivan E. Coyote

Ivan E. Coyote and Rae Spoon are accomplished, award-winning writers, musicians and performers; they are also both admitted “gender failures.” In their first collaborative book, a poignant collection of autobiographical essays, lyrics and images, Ivan and Rae explore and expose their failed attempts at fitting into the gender binary, and how ultimately our expectations and assumptions around traditional gender roles fail us all.

QUEER : A Graphic History by Meg-John Barker and Julia Scheele

Though not a graphic novel, this high illustrated nonfiction book explores how we came to view sex, gender and sexuality in the ways that we do. Barker and Scheele show how these ideas get tangled up with our culture and our understanding of biology, psychology and sexology; and how these views have been disputed and challenged.  Each page focuses on a specific aspect of the subject.
