    All Down Darkness Wide

    by Seán Hewitt

    All Down Darkness Wide is a perceptive and unflinching meditation on the burden of living in a world that too often sets happiness and queer life at odds, and a tender and honest portrayal of what it’s like to be caught in the undertow of a loved one’s deep depression. As lives are made and unmade, this memoir asks what love can endure and what it cannot.

    Gender Outlaw

    by Kate Bornstein

    Gender Outlaw was decades ahead of its time when it was first published in 1994. Now, some thirty-odd years later, this book stands as both a classic and a still-revolutionary work — one that continues to push us gently but profoundly to the furthest borders of the gender frontier.

    A Visible Man

    by Edward Enninful

    When Edward Enninful became the first Black editor-in-chief of British Vogue, few in the world of fashion wanted to confront how it failed to represent the world we live in. But Edward, a champion of inclusion throughout his life, rapidly changed that. A Visible Man traces an astonishing journey into one of the world’s most exclusive industries. Edward candidly shares how as a Black, gay, working-class refugee, he found in fashion not only a home, but the freedom to share with people the world as he saw it.
