New E-Book: Defining LGBTQ+

Hi friends! I’m going to keep this short. I just put together an E-Book called “Defining LGBTQ+.” It’s a guide to gender and sexuality terminology, based on my article Comprehensive List of LGBTQ+ Vocabulary Definitions, which was based on the glossary from my first book (A Guide to Gender), that grew into a collaboration with Meg Bolger (The Safe Zone Project) and thousands of you.

Now, before you get too excited, it’s not really a book-book. Think of it more like an elaborately annotated glossary, or a dictionary with way too much context.

The deets:

  • It’s short. It weighs in at 37 pages and about 10,000 words.
  • It’s printer-friendly. I formatted to look great on an 8.5″ x 11″ letter size (sorry to my A4 friends abroad — if enough of you ask, I’ll format it in A4 as well!)
  • It’s uncopyrighted. Like everything else I make here, so you can modify it and use it in your educational endeavors.
  • It’s a work in progress. Just like my original post, I’ll update this continually with changes suggested by you, and to reflect the evolution of culture.
  • It’s pay-what-you-want/can. You can get it for free, or choose to pay (whatever amount you can or want to pay, even $0! I’m happy to provide this as my gift to you). I’m delivering this via Gumroad (instead of as a .PDF download here) to make it easier to update you when I improve it or fix tpyos.

There’s a big ol’ backstory behind it that I might get into at some point, but right now I just want to keep it at that.

This is a thing that a lot of you asked for, and you now you can have it.

Share it with a friend, print a copy for your parent(s), or add it to a new employee orientation handbook. Do you. I’m here to help.

Want to check it out? All you need to do is click the button below, then follow the prompts, and a download link will be sent to your email. Then let me know what you think!

(Oh, and don’t worry — I won’t add you to the general IPM email list. You have to sign up for that yourself. You’ll only get emails when there’s an improved E-Book for you to download. I absolutely hate spam email, and when someone adds me to their email list without my consent. I won’t do that to you.)
