None of the Above – Lambeth LGBTQ+ book group special

Friday 27th October

Join the Lambeth LGBTQ+ book group to discuss None of the Above: Reflections on Life Beyond the Binary by Travis Alabanza.

 

Winner of the Jhalak prize 2023, Travis Alabanza examines seven phrases people have directed at them about their gender identity. These phrases have stayed with them over the years. Some are deceptively innocuous, some deliberately loaded or offensive, some celebratory; sentences that have impacted them for better and for worse; sentences that speak to the broader issues raised by a world that insists that gender must be a binary.

Through these seven phrases, which include some of their most transformative experiences as a Black, mixed race, non-binary person, Travis Alabanza turns a mirror back on society, giving us reason to question the very framework in which we live and the ways we treat each other.

To borrow a copy of the book please contact the library.
