About 3.5% of the 2015 U.S. population identifies as being part of the LGBT community. This is NOT a celebrity book, but no doubt the notoriety of Caitlyn Jenner has propelled the issue to the forefront of media. A book of great insightfulness and self-evaluation and direction on how to deal with the issues confronting those who want to embrace their true self without fear of alienation of friends and families or not sharing who they are for fear of reprisal. Ashley lived this, and came out stronger than she ever thought imaginable, so while it has elements of memoir, it is very much a self-help title.

Adobe Design Achievement Award winner - Social Impact Category A portion of proceeds will be donated to Rainbow Railroad, an organization that helps LGBTQ people around the world find a safe haven from persecution. A cheeky, progressive adult alphabet book that celebrates and illuminates LGBTQ terminology. What would happen if someone picked up a classic ABC book, crossed out the words, and replaced them with LGBTQ terms? The result would be GAYBCs --a playful, subversive alphabet book that aims to spread awareness and demystify queer terminology for everyone. Instead of apple, ball, and chick, this book's ABCs are ally, bisexual, and cisgender. A ladybug gains a matching girlfriend to become lesbian, kiss becomes kink, and tie gets a gender-bending twist to become transgender. Using straightforward, accessible language, GAYBCs also defines less commonly known terms, such as "femme," "Mx.," and "ze," and puts LGBTQ-friendly spins on words like "wedding" and "equality." With clear definitions and clever illustrations, this book is accessible to everyone from teenagers to grandparents and those in the LGBTQ community as well as family, friends, and allies of all backgrounds.
