Taking a fun dive into the evolving language of gender and sexual diversity, YouTube sensation Ashley Mardell emerges with a powerful tool in the form of this fabulous little book.  What are the differences among Trans women, demigirls, Non-binary people, Multigender people, Genderfluid people…?!  This and oh so much more is explained clearly through personal stories, pictures and diverse perspectives.  I love the ‘Gender Unicorn’ spectrum diagram, created by Trans Students Educational Resources, in which Ashley plots her own identity for us, including her Gender identity, Gender Expression, Sex assigned at birth, Physically attracted to-, and Emotionally attracted to-. This is a great book for teens, healthcare professionals, teachers, families and anyone wanting to know more about the ABC’s of LGBT+.
