A Quick & Easy Guide to Queer & Trans Identities Reviews

  • Bruna Miranda

    The title says it all! It actually IS a quick and easy guide to all identities, sexual orientations, romantic orientations and all things queer. If anyone ever says "this book is not for me because I am [insert anything here]", they are lying because this reflects on how having their identity acknowledged and valued is about EVERYONE.

    This book is part of the road to become a better human by having empathy and respecting others, just like that. The writing is very simple and easy to follow so I t

    This book is part of the road to become a better human by having empathy and respecting others, just like that. The writing is very simple and easy to follow so I think kids and teenagers would benefit greatly if there were a copy of this in every school and library.

    I'm glad I picked this is up and that a book like this is being published. <3

    So, Miss Pihilippines was crowned Miss Universe 2018 and we Filipinos are quite proud of her! But there is also a lot of transmisogyny (pertaining to Ms. Spain , Angela Ponce who is a transwoman) spreading especially in my

    country because most of them failed to acknowledge that trans women

    An online article published by Preen.ph articulates this well, here is an excerpt:

    I hope that everyone here in GR would give this book a chance for it effectively educates more on what the LGBTQ community is. You can find it in NetGalley in the Read Now Section.

    I would like to thank the publisher Oni Press, Limerence Press, and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC for this book.

    How ironic that I've learned so much from one of my most greatest phobia--snails. Bubblegum hues and bubblegum smiles. This graphic novel

    a quick and easy guide to understanding the LGBTQ spectrum. It easily breaks down every crucial misconception we have of them.

    This is a relevant book and I think everyone needs to read what it has to say. Its light candy aesthetics will surely appeal to every reader out there and it makes it a more enjoyable read!

    Thank you NetGalley and Oni Press for this DRC.

    "The world is home to such a vibrant rainbow of people, so why not genders."

    This is filled with wonderful, informative and easy to digest information.

    I did think it was geared more to teens/adults and younger people may need help reading and understanding all the details discussed. That's not necessarily a bad thing since it would hopefully spark conversation/questions.

    They really touched on a bit of everything, including signs of toxic relationship

    They really touched on a bit of everything, including signs of toxic relationships. This is something I think all people should be made more aware of in order to spot and escape these kinds of harmful dependencies. This is especially true for anyone still coming to terms with their own identity who may not feel brave enough to speak up and/or draw attention to themselves.

    "Let yourself grow and change and learn- that's what being alive is all about."

    I think I would have preferred if the conversations had all been delivered by humans. I found the snails and sproutlings a bit weird. The human discussions around the fire were much easier to connect to and I would have favoured more of those with less of the other critters.

    Overall I found this was a warm, respectful and loving delivery that could open up fantastic dialogue toward understanding one's own personal feelings or those of a loved ones.

    Isn’t that cover amazing and beautiful? Yes, it is!

    This graphic novel, as the title says, is all about explaining queer identity. It sort of focuses on transgender and nonbinary people, but it has more general sections on gender identity vs romantic/sexual orientation, a section on coming out, discussions of self-love, and even a section on red flags in relationships.

    I didn’t expect to learn anything new from this booklet, and

    Isn’t that cover amazing and beautiful? Yes, it is!

    This graphic novel, as the title says, is all about explaining queer identity. It sort of focuses on transgender and nonbinary people, but it has more general sections on gender identity vs romantic/sexual orientation, a section on coming out, discussions of self-love, and even a section on red flags in relationships.

    I didn’t expect to learn anything new from this booklet, and yet it made me realise that social dysphoria exists (up until now, I only knew about physical dysphoria) and that I definitely have been experiencing it.

    You see so much gatekeeping nowadays that I am wary about most guides like this, but I found this one refreshingly inclusive, with recognising that not every trans person experiences dysphoria, talking about how nonbinary people might experience transness differently from binary trans people, and an entire section on asexuality. Also, both the intro and the outtro talk about the importance of inclusivity, and “making our quilt bigger” if someone doesn’t fit under it.

    Other perks of this book include accessible language, fun illustrations with snails, a section at the end where you can write a letter to your past or future self, and more.

    That being said, I do have two concerns.

    1) The definition of bisexuality used here is “attraction to the same gender and other genders”. This is definitely better than insisting bi people can only be attracted to binary genders or only two genders, but not every bisexual person is attracted to the same gender (e.g. a woman only being attracted to women and nonbinary people can be bi), and the concept of “same gender” might not mean much to a lot of nonbinary people anyway.

    2) While there is an entire section asexuality, aromanticism is only mentioned in one sentence in the asexual section, and it’s even phrased in a way that implies that only asexual people can be aromantic. This is not true, and there is a bad tendency of only mentioning aromanticism as a “subset” of asexuality when they are different things and not necessarily go together. Since my copy was an ARC, I do hope that the publisher will consider and maybe change this.

    Other than those two things, I was pleasantly surprised and content with this guide.
