Gender Failure

Gender Failure


Gender Failure by Rae Spoon and Ivan E. Coyote

paperback, 2014

Ivan E. Coyote and Rae Spoon are accomplished, award-winning writers and performers; they are also both admitted "gender failures." In their first collaborative book, Ivan and Rae explore and expose their failed attempts at fitting into the gender binary, and how ultimately our expectations and assumptions around traditional gender roles fail us all.

Based on their acclaimed live show that has toured across North America and in Europe, Gender Failure is a poignant collection of autobiographical essays, lyrics, and images documenting Ivan and Rae's personal journeys from gender failure to gender self-acceptance. It's a book that will touch LGBTQ readers and others, revealing, with candor and insight, that gender comes in more than two sizes.
