For anyone who's ever wished they had a smart, kind, friend with whom they could calmly and safely discuss gender issues: this most excellent book is that kind of friend. Source: Kate Bornstein, author of Gender Outlaw
Wherever you are on your gender adventure, this book will be helpful to you. Beyond the headlines, gender is a personal journey - and for anyone struggling to find their way, this is the compassionate, accessible manual the world has been waiting for.

How to Understand Your Gender is a thoughtful, intersectional, embodied invitation to reflect on gender. It has something to offer to readers at every stage of their gender journey, and is a valuable tool for educators and clinicians.

The authors have made adequate time for Indigenous and Two Spirit identities and people. Talking about decolonizing the gender narrative in a way that traces back to the very roots of the first peoples in a place is something that is crucial in providing understanding, but is often ignored or overlooked. Hands down, I will recommend this book for anybody looking to learn more about gender and sexuality. It's an amazing resource for ALL, regardless of identity, experience or knowledge. I fell head over heels with this book, and I can't wait to shout it from the rooftops! Source: Katrina Werchouski, Director of Indigenous Cultures Center, Northland College
If you want to finally discard the narrow confines of gender and sexuality and explore the vast landscapes of gender and sexual imagination, this is your book! Source: Jayashree George, Lecturer, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
As a trans masculine person [...] I identified with so much, over and over again. Not only did this validate my own journey but it offered me access to the joys and difficulties of others and I felt less alone. This book will travel with me, it's not a one off read, but a guide I can dip in and out of whenever I feel the need. Source: Wenn Lawson, author of Transitioning Together

I identity as a cis gender gay man and I felt that Alex and MJ invited me and then drew me into the fascinating world of gender. I learnt a great deal and still want to learn more; this is a book about opening up your mind to the exciting possibilities of a world where people are free to be themselves and we can celebrate and affirm that.
By the end of the book I felt uplifted and energised - this book switches you on to 'possibilities' and as therapist I feel that can only be a very good thing for me and for my clients!
I’d also recommend this book to anyone who has a trans friend or family member, or just wants a handle on what gender really is, rather than assuming they already know.
