THE GENDERFAIL READER 1 + 2 + 3 ESSAYS by Be Oakley and Yvonne LeBien
105 x 173mm, 318 pages, Black & white printing, Perfect bound, Softcover, 2021
A compilation of all three volumes of our GenderFail Reader series. At the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic (and now almost two years into this ongoing tragedy) we released our first GenderFail Reader. This first edition compiled essays from previously published zines and other written essays by myself (Be Oakley) and my partner Yvonne LeBien. This book is a capstone of all three volumes, including essays, artworks and ideas that have helped to formulate GenderFail during the last 6 years of the project. These essays speak to the interests, research and passions that drive GenderFail and highlight the powerful agency behind self and small publishing. My hope is that these essays inspire you to future actions, dreams, hopes and new worlds that center people and communities fighting for a world without colonialism, white supremacy, capitalism, ableism and heteronormative oppression.
