The Human Agenda - Joe Wenke

FTC Compliance Statement: I received a free, time-limited, electronic review copy of this book from the publisher via in exchange for my honest review, which is provided below. I have not been compensated for this review and my opinion is my own.

This book's subtitle, Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity, says it all. The book is made up of a series of conversations the author has had with various members of the quiltbag (LGBTQI) community, including the gorgeous Carmen Carrera, who appeared on one of my very favorite TV shows, RuPaul's Drag Race, before coming out as a trans woman. Each conversation is thought provoking, with multiple conversations touching on current issues such as "tolerance" vs "acceptance," trans* people being seen as disordered, even by people who consider themselves allies of gay people, etc. There is a lot of material here for discussion and much food for thought. Recommended.
