Banned Book Review: Gender Queer

Updated: Jul 31, 2023


Go straight to the review

Wyoming Family Alliance for Freedom believes in parental control without government overreach. Banning or complicating access to books is not a Wyoming value. Its time for Wyomingites who value liberty to stand up to those who would infringe on the rights of others in pursuit of their own political ideology.

People who advocate for the removal or restriction of a book have rarely read it, relying instead on out-of-context excerpts feed to them from out-of-state groups with political motives to vilify educators and harm public education.


We encourage you to read this review from one of your neighbors, and read the book in question yourself. We believe you will find, as our professional librarians have already established- that the book has merit and value when taken as a whole.


 

BANNED BOOK REVIEW BY A CITIZEN OF LARAMIE COUNTY-

Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe


Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe

Reviewed by Lindsey Hanlon, Cheyenne, WY


A deeply personal story of exploring sexual and gender identity that also manages to be incredibly relatable. It’s hard to put into words what I loved most about this book, but I think the heart of it is how much it made me feel seen and understood. I think if I’d had this book as a young person, I would have avoided years of pain and confusion.


If you like this book, I would recommend Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel, Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity by Julia Serano, and Female Masculinity by J. Jack Halberstam..
