Flamingo Rampant! Gender Independent Kids Books

February 22, 2012 · Posted in by Damon 

Are you tired of the limited choices of children’s books? With the binary gendered and assumed-to-be-heterosexual characters?  Ok, there are a couple out in the world that defy these parameters like My Princess Boy, 10,000 Dresses, and And Tango Makes Three. This blog also has a really good list including some that are new to me and I can’t wait to check out. But the book I’m really excited to read it the ones that S. Bear Bergman’s Kickstarter is promoting – check it out here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/310387180/flamingo-rampant-gender-independent-kids-books.  Bear’s books for adults, Butch is a Noun and more recent The Nearest Exist May be Behind You (“Bear’s poetry of butchness lets us see into facets of gender that usually aren’t so transparent.”—Carol Queen) are engaging and a lifeline for gender-variant folks looking to see their own experiences reflected in the world. Now Bear is going to write two children’s books! Check out his Kickstarter, this is an amazing project.
