I‘ve been feeling somewhat slumpy (more like just tired and distracted) so just picked the most recently purchased Kindle book and dove in. 20% in and I‘m loving it. #queerbooks #LGBTbooks

Just finished this book on a lazy, rainy Sunday. I had seen the movie first, so perhaps my expectations were already a little higher. The movie and book are different, but I like that we get a little more of post-relationship Simon here. It was well balanced in terms of the portrayal of teenage drama. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I were the target audience. #viloniareads #lgbtbooks #vhsreads #ya

Finished this last night.
Absolutely fantastic. Written as a series of speeches and “portraits” of trans people. It‘s incredibly heartening to read these in this political climate. It feels like not only are people like me part of history, we are important in history. We have always been here, and we will keep fighting.

Wow this book was a ride. Although, of course, the title warned me about that. So, thoughts:

First of all, this is a book to go into with prior experience with trans terminology, theory, other authors and perspectives. Bornstein is a FANTASTIC writer but that doesn‘t mean she doesn‘t have flaws. I can‘t say I agree with all of her politics, but the fun she has with gender and life in general makes this worth a pick.

Rthvn If you do pick this up please be warned; this book touches on a lot of things that could be triggering. Off the top of my head, suicide, eating disorders, sexual assault, cults, self harm.... probably more stuff too. 1y

Overall a great read, pick it up if you want an overview of LGBTQ+ history in the U.S.

Be warned though that it very rarely moves out of the territory of Gay and Lesbian history, mentions a few bisexual people but almost never bisexuality and refers to “transvestism” more times than transgender people. Certainly very important historically, but has a few blind spots that could be addressed.

Day 26 of the RiotGrams Challenge: Set in Your City, State, or Country

This book is set in a fictional small southern town in Tennessee, and the author was born and raised here, so she gets the setting just right. Wonderful book!

Her first memoir was one of my absolute favorites so I‘m looking forward to this. #LGBTBooks #QueerBooks
