In Beyond the Gender Binary, poet, artist, and LGBTQIA+ rights advocate Alok Vaid-Menon deconstructs, demystifies, and reimagines the gender binary.


Pocket Change Collective is a series of small books with big ideas from today's leading activists and artists. In this installment, Beyond the Gender Binary, Alok Vaid-Menon challenges the world to see gender not in black and white, but in full color. Taking from their own experiences as a gender-nonconforming artist, they show us that gender is a malleable and creative form of expression. The only limit is your imagination.

You are fab, you are inspiration

What an amazing analyst you are. Great book. I felt totally identified with you and the world we live in. We have to work hard to be respected not tolerated. Thank you for being such an inspiration for this and the new generation.

Should be Required Reading

“What part of yourself did you have to destroy in order to survive in this world?"

In Beyond the Gender Binary, Alok Vaid-Menon shares personal experiences they have had over their lifetime to break down misconceptions people have about non-gender conforming people and highlight that the only limit to gender expression is a person’s own imagination.

I highly recommend everyone read Beyond the Gender Binary!
