- After the controversial LGBT memoir “Gender Queer” was banned from a school in Maine, a local non-profit has announced it will provide free copies of the book to any student in the area who wants one.
- The Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance (MWPA) is raising money to provide the books to students after Regional School Unit 56 directors voted 7-2 to remove it from Dirigo High School’s library.
- Written and illustrated by Maia Kobabe, “Gender Queer: A Memoir” follows the author’s journey through adolescence to adulthood while exploring gender identity and sexuality, according to publisher Simon & Schuster. Kobabe uses “e/em/eir” pronouns, which the publisher adheres to on its website.
