This is a fairly short read so I thought I’d share a short review! I received this one from Oni Press and on their suggestion, I’m going to share this book with as many people as I can. Also, check out the bottom of this post for some links for more learning!

A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns by Archie Bongiovanni and Tristan Jimerson
Genre: LGBTQ Graphic Novel | Nonfiction

Archie, a snarky genderqueer artist, is tired of people not understanding gender neutral pronouns. Tristan, a cisgender dude, is looking for an easy way to introduce gender neutral pronouns to his increasingly diverse workplace. The longtime best friends team up in this short and fun comic guide that explains what pronouns are, why they matter, and how to use them. They also include what to do if you make a mistake, and some tips-and-tricks for those who identify outside of the binary to keep themselves safe in this binary-centric world. A quick and easy resource for people who use they/them pronouns, and people who want to learn more!

This is a really great intro to the importance of gender neutral pronouns, whether these are new-to-you concepts or you’re an old pro. It’s presented as a comic strip and a conversation between the two authors so it’s a super accessible form and makes for quick reading (as the title suggests).
