“When you are someone that falls outside of categories in so many ways, a lot of things are said to you. And I have had a lot of things said to me.” In their latest book, None of the Above, Travis Alabanza examines seven of the most impactful questions people have asked them about their gender identity. These phrases look at the broader issues of a society that pushes a gender binary and punishes those who ‘dare’ to exist outside of it.

Travis will be in conversation with Renn Miano, Founder of Origins Eile, a QTIBPOC community responsive org.
