Non-Binary Genders

Methodologically innovative in its use of mixed-media diary research, this timely book offers a focused sociological study of non-binary people’s identities and experiences in the UK.

From negotiating a sense of legitimacy when ‘not feeling trans enough’ to how identities can shift over time, it reveals important nuances of diverse gender identities while offering crucial insights into trans-related healthcare inequalities.

The findings of this ground-breaking research mark an important contribution to the wider fields of gender studies, LGBTQ scholarship and medical policy.

"This book offers an interesting and insightful discussion of key issues facing non-binary people, and through the research presented contributes significantly to existing knowledge in this field." Tray Yeadon-Lee, University of Huddersfield

“Timely, contemporary and leading edge. This is a ground-breaking work in gender studies.” Lucy Nicholas, Western Sydney University

Ben Vincent (they/them) is an academic specialising in transgender studies in the Department for People and Organisations at the Open University.
