Two books to pre-order!

Two awesome bi activists have books coming out in 2021 and I can’t wait to read them!

The first is Queerly Autistic: The Ultimate Guide for Lgbtqia+ Teens on the Spectrum by Erin Ekins. This will be a vital resource for young people, especially as being autistic and LGBTQ+ is marginalised despite the fact that they frequently coincide. You can pre-order it here*.

I also highly recommend checking this out if you organise events for LGBTQ+ people. When I ran Nottingham BiTopia for example, about a 1/4 of attendees were autistic or neurodiverse.

In case you aren’t following her already, Erin’s Twitter handle is @QueerlyAutistic.

The second book is Bi the Way: The Bisexual Guide to Life by Lois Shearing from the same publisher (Jessica Kingsley Publishers). It’s described as an essential guide for anyone who is bisexual, or looking for information on bisexuality, and will cover a wide range of topics such as dating, dealing with biphobia, and gender identity. Click here to pre-order*, and you can follow Lois on Twitter at @LoShearing.

What books are you excited about? Do you have any recommendations? Let me know in the comments!

The above images are the book covers for Queerly Autistic and Bi The Way. Both covers are words on a coloured background. Queerly Autistic is yellow writing on orange. Bi The Way is pink, purple and blue on a purpple background.

*Note: I’ve checked the publisher’s site and they are not available to pre-order there. If this changes I will swap the links so people can support them directly.

  1. Hi, why do you describe the book covers? Is this an accessibility offer for blind readers? I never really thought about blind people reading my blog, that would make me extremely happy. I’ve just recently begun recording book reviews for youtube. I’ve been toying with the idea of recording some of my better blog posts so they can be listened to in my voice instead of read. This is all really out-there for me. I’m extremely anxious and guarded and I have a really hard time reading aloud. Pushing boundaries. Neurodiverse: Tourette Syndrome. Thanks for listening.

    1. Hi Jeff, thanks for commenting. Good to hear from you. That’s right, I describe them for accessibility reasons. It doesn’t take long and it really helps people out so I encourage everyone to do it!

      Good luck with the new things that don’t come easily to you, and well done for doing them. What’s your blog about?
