Gender Queer: A Memoir by Maia Kobabe

After coming out as nonbinary in 2016, Maia Kobabe (who uses e/em/eir pronouns) began drawing black and white cartoons about eir experiences with eir gender identity and posting them to Instagram. These cartoons would become the basis for Gender Queer, which recounts Kobabe's journey from adolescence to adulthood and explores eir journey of gender identity and sexuality, as well as topics like gender euphoria, gender dysphoria, and asexuality.
