Alok Vaid-Menon shows us how a world beyond male and female creates more freedom for everyone.

"More Than Binary" is a book that encourages to think beyond the categories of man and woman. Powerfully and openly, Alok Vaid-Menon speaks in their book about the binary gender system, the path to their identity that was met with bullying and exclusion, and the prejudices and accusations that gender nonconforming people are confronted with every day. Alok Vaid-Menon provides readers with the knowledge needed to stand up to the rising trans discrimination and passionately invites the whole world to see gender not just in black and white, but in all vibrant colors.

In the Frankfurt Studio, the queer icon can be seen live on stage in conversation with editor Charlotte Milsch on the Sunday of the fair.
