Outside the XYOutside the XY ueer Black and Brown Masculinity is an anthology of than 50 stories memories poems ideas essays and letters all examining what it looks like feels like and is like to inhabit masculinity outside of cisgender. There’s no doubt this is a really important read and I’m glad this book has been published because we need to hear these voices However some of the essays were very academic and others were really poetic and these aren’t really formats that do much for me because I don’t feel educated enough to ‘analyse’ them like I want to Had there been of memoir style essays I would have ‘enjoyed’ this That being said in reading this book I’ve been introduced to a lot of terminology I wasn’t aware of and that I’ll try to retain and there are some very important messages of self lovecare in here and the acceptance of non binary identities I’m also very aware of the fact I am not the target audience for this book and my opinion shouldn’t matter I’m just really glad it’s out thereThank you to Netgalley and Riverdale Avenue Books for providing an ebook of this for review
