“Raw, extraordinary, and profoundly moving . . . Joshua’s memoir rocked me to the core . . . It is truly inspiring to hear the story of an individual so untethered in the expression of their authentic self.” - Jazz Jennings
“The world is broken and we need to learn to love each other without limits. Me, Myself, They is a revelation of beauty and compassion for the human soul.” - Andie MacDowell
“A rousing call for empathy and care. It asks us to widen the terrain of gender and, in so doing, to fashion a new world. This is some of the most important work of our time, and Joshua’s memoir is a beacon!” - Billy-Ray Belcourt, author of This Wound is a World
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 towards sex and gender, Ferguson calls for recognition and respect for all trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming 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.
