Publisher's Summary

When you are someone who 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 None of the Above, Travis Alabanza examines seven phrases people have directed at them about their gender identity. These phrases have stayed with them over the years. Some are deceptively innocuous, some deliberately loaded or offensive, some celebratory; sentences that have impacted them for better and for worse; sentences that speak to the broader issues raised by a world that insists that gender must be a binary.

Through these seven phrases, which include some of their most transformative experiences as a Black, mixed-race, non-binary person, Travis Alabanza turns a mirror back on society, giving us reason to question the very framework in which we live and the ways we treat each other.

Such an important book.

Travis explores gender with incredible theoretical insight, gorgeous prose and generous honesty about what it means to be gender non-conforming. Holding space for doubt, love and change, they seamlessly imagine a world where it’s okay to be unsure, where transness is not a problem to be solved, where we are all figuring it out under a gender binary which doesn’t serve any of us anymore - whether trans or cis.

beautifully and thoughtfully written

happy to have chosen to listen to this as a lot of the beautifully written and detailed insights land much more powerfully in the author's own voice.

Captivating and necessary read

Loved it, could not put down!! So great to hear the stories of those who aren't usually heard. Such a necessary read for many in and out of the lgbt community!

Moving insight into being trans non binary

As an older trans person who has recently begun identifying as non binary I found Travis' story both inspiring and alarming. I first came across them when a friend recommended I listened to an interview on the Homosapiens podcast and was so impressed by their success as a writer and performer. I think what alarmed me Boston was hearing that Travis still encounters levels of discrimination and harassment unchanged for over 50 years.

Wish I could give 10 stars

Such beautiful and vulnerable writing. It felt as though Travis was able to describe feelings I have had about my gender transition better than I could. Everyone should read this book.
