How to They/Them by Stuart GettyHow to They/Them: A Visual Guide to Nonbinary Pronouns and the World of Gender Fluidity by Stuart Getty
Published by Sasquatch Books on September 29, 2020

Ever wonder what nonbinary or gender nonconforming really mean? And how the heck do you use they/them pronouns for just one person? Isn't it supposed to be plural?
This charming and disarming guide unpacks all these questions and more with a fun, visual approach. From a real-deal they/them-using genderqueer writer, this book makes it humorous and easy to learn so that everyone can get it. No soap boxes or divisive comment section wars here. Sometimes funny, sometimes serious, always human, this 101 primer is about more than just bathrooms and pronouns. It's about gender expression and the freedom to choose how to identify. While they might only be for some, that freedom is for everyone!

Leann’s Thoughts

How to They/Them book cover

Stuart Getty’s How to They/Them is the perfect book for those who are curious about nonbinary pronouns but are afraid of diving into a grammar book. Getty uses plenty of illustrations along with non-intimidating text that makes it sound like you’re listening to a friend. Getty talks about their life and highlights the lives of many people who prefer to use non-gendered pronouns. 

I really liked how they handled some questions I’ve wondered about, but didn’t quite know how to ask: how do you know if someone prefers they/them pronouns, how do you handle this question among a group of strangers, what happens if I slip up? 

I truly appreciate their time and attention in writing this book. It really has made me feel more comfortable writing without worrying about “doing it wrong”. 

This is a great book to hand out to help ease tensions and increase awareness and understanding of using they/them pronouns.
