International Non-Binary People’s Day takes place annually on 14 July each year and celebrates and raises awareness of non-binary people, who do not identify within the traditional gender binary. This takes place during non-binary awareness week from Monday 11 July until Saturday 16 July 2022.
The date, celebrated since 2012, was chosen as it falls between International Women’s Day on 8 March and International Men’s Day on 19 November. With that in mind, here are some great books to celebrate our friends.
