Gender FailureBook - 2014
"Ivan E. Coyote and Rae Spoon are accomplished, award-winning writers, musicians, and performers; they are also both admitted "gender failures." Ivan and Rae explore and expose their failed attempts at fitting into the gender binary, and how ultimately our expectations and assumptions around traditional gender roles fail us all. Based on their acclaimed 2012 live show that toured across the United States and in Europe, Gender Failure is a poignant collection of autobiographical essays, lyrics, and images documenting Ivan and Rae's personal journeys. A book that will touch LGBTQ readers and others, revealing, with candor and insight, that gender comes in more than two sizes. Ivan E. Coyote is the author of seven previous books, the most recent of which is One in Every Crowd, and is co-editor of Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme. Originally from the Yukon, she now lives in Vancouver. Rae Spoon, author of First Spring Grass Fire, is a transgender indie musician whose most recent CD is My Prairie Home, which is also the title of a new National Film Board of Canada documentary about them. She lives in Calgary."--Provided by publisher.
