  • Everyone should read this book.

    By Barry R. (they/them)
    This books is absolutely fantastic for starting or refreshing your knowledge about LGBTQIAP+ identities; I knew a lot of the information in the book, but also learned a lot too! I wish it was in basically every school and library, so more people could read it and educate themselves. It's very inclusive and easy to understand, which I really appreciated. It even acknowledges that not every definition given in the book is the absolute only definition for that identity (for example, one definition given for bisexual/biromantic in the book is being attracted to two or more genders, while I've heard some bi people define it as being attracted to genders similar to their own and different to their own.) I did find the footnotes that included websites to be a little unusable; I would like to visit those sites to learn more, but I don't know if I'm going to sit down and go through the whole book again and type out all of the urls to do that.

    This book helped me understand myself and others better. I also became much closer to the community.
  • Learning and Critically Thinking

    By WLAKfreak4ever
    My reason for picking up this book was originally to learn about the LBGT+ community as a straight cisgendered male so that I could better know and respect who people are when I meet them! I grew up thinking that I was male, and could only ever be as such! This book though has really made me think upon myself and re-evaluate who am I and how I view myself. That being said, I won't claim any terms until I take a long while to reflect, as I by no means wish to appropriate terms from those who truly are those things. That being said, I think that if you want to know anything about what this book has to offer, it will absolutely teach it to you and you'll have enough knowledge to understand each term and how real life people who are those things came to identify with that term! Which is incredible! There's first hand explanations from people and not just definitions of words, which not only helps you to understand better, but even remember things better as there are a lot of terms and the stories that each person brings along makes each thing more memorable! So if you were like me and just want to learn, buy this book. If you are in or interested in the LGBT+ community, buy this book. If you are in any way curious about yourself or want to re-evaluate yourself, read this book. If you are a self-respecting person, I think you'll read this book. Good job, Ash.
