GROUNDBREAKING PERSPECTIVE: As the first author to comprehensively speak for the nonbinary experience, Jacob Tobia is a breakout voice and celebrity on the rise. What David Sedaris did for gay men and Janet Mock for trans women, Jacob will do for the nonbinary and genderqueer communities.
FANTASTIC AND GROWING PLATFORM: Named one of Forbes’ “30 Under 30” and one of the “OUT 100,” Jacob was a producer for Amazon’s award-winning show Transparent and created, coproduced, and hosted Queer 2.0, an LGBTQ series on NBC News. Their writing and advocacy have been featured everywhere from The Washington Post to The New York Times and Teen Vogue. In 2017, Jacob produced #KindComments, a custom Instagram campaign for Trans Day of Visibility that was viewed over 14 million times.
HILARIOUS, SMART, AND MOVING: While Jacob is growing a platform as an activist and performer, they are a writer at heart. Their prose is in turn laugh-out-loud funny, wise beyond their years, and heartbreakingly honest. This book is a joy to read and a classic in the making that will stand the test of time alongside favorites like Me Talk Pretty One Day and I Feel Bad About My Neck.
