Press Reviews

  • Juno Roche, author of Trans Power, Queer Sex and Gender Explorers

    Our history is rich, deep, diverse and expansive. Ancient even. This beautifully illustrated book documents our rich history clearly and gloriously. A vital book if setting out to discover our history(s) or to tell or retell the story the us. We have been pioneers pushing at the constrictive limits of gender for centuries.
  • Meg-John Barker, author of Life Isn't Binary and Gender: A Graphic Guide

    A beautifully illustrated and fascinating tour through the history of transness and gender creativity. A must for anyone who wants to know their gender history, or to access awesome possibility-models from across time and space.
  • Susan Stryker, author of Transgender History: The Roots of Today's Revolution

    Gender Pioneers is a fun, fact-filled, easy-to-read romp through the long history of gender-diversity in cultures around the world. It places contemporary trans identities in a broader context to show there's nothing new about being non-binary or changing gender.
