Publisher's Summary

Me, Myself, They: Life Beyond the Binary chronicles Joshua M. Ferguson’s extraordinary story of transformation to become the celebrated non-binary filmmaker, writer, and advocate for trans rights they are today. 

Beginning with their birth and early childhood years of gender creativity, Ferguson recounts the complex and often challenging evolution of their identity, including traumatizing experiences with gender conversion therapy, bullying, depression, sexual assault, and violent physical assault. But Ferguson’s story is above all about survival, empathy, and self-acceptance. By combining their personal reflections on what it feels like to never truly fit into the prescribed roles of girl or boy, woman or man, with an informed analysis of the ongoing shifts in contemporary attitudes toward sex and gender, Ferguson calls for recognition and respect for all trans, non-binary, and gender-nonconforming people and an inclusive understanding of the rich diversity of human identity. 

Through their honest and impassioned storytelling, we learn what it means to reclaim one’s identity and to live beyond the binary.
