Serena Bhandar – Turning gender inside out & centring trans analysis
Ruby Smith Díaz – Self care & collective care for QT/ IBPOC

Natalie Knight – Gendered violence and decolonization
Alix Johnson – Possibilities and pitfalls in creating meaningful accountability structures
plus print versions of The Opposite of Rape Culture is Nurturance Culture, Own Apologize Repair, and On Gaslighting,
AND a new Introduction never before published.
It is already available on the big Bookselling Thing That Shall Remain Unnamed for 15.00 US and 22.00 in Canada. You can also order it right this very minute for a 25% off early bird discount directly from the publisher for a limited time.
Other ways you can help? You can call your favourite indie bookstore near you to let them know you’d like them to get it in. You can also contact your local library to request that they get a couple of copies to keep in circulation.
If you live in the US, here is a tool that lets you enter your zip code to find out where it can be pre-ordered at an independent bookstore near you.
So grateful to AK Press (akpress.org), especially my amazing and generous editor Andrew Zonneveld and the whole kick ass collective, especially Zach, Charles, and Molly, who’ve patiently helped me learn the ropes. Thank you to everyone who helped at many stages of this book coming together, chipped in to help cover transcription and extra editing, and to everyone who challenged and discussed with me, pushed me to see and remember. And thank you to you! The readers have made everything possible!
There’ll be a full acknowledgment of everyone who helped this happen in the book itself, so for now a special shout out to gifted additional editors Cindy Milstein and Tanya Andrusieczko whose work on significant sections of the book was indispensable, and the incredible cover art designer Siana Sonoquie!
A more formal announcement will happen closer to the release date when we’ll plan launch events. Folks who would like to organize a tour stop in your town in June / July, please feel free to be in touch in PMs? It can go wherever folks want to book a room and make some posters…
Gratitude to all who have believed in and cared for this project in so many ways ❤
