An Illustrated Guide to Identity and Expression by Iris Gottlieb
Now with a new foreword by National Book Award Winner Kacen Callender, this fascinating book on a relevant subject illustrates the complexities of gender and sexuality through history, science, sociology, and the author's own story.
Gender is an intensely personal, yet universal, facet of humanity.
