Go‑to expert on gender identity, Schuyler Bailar, offers an essential, urgent guide that changes the conversation.
Schuyler Bailar (he/him) is an educator, author, and advocate. He is also the first transgender athlete to compete in any sport on an NCAA Division 1 men’s team. His work has earned him numerous honors including NYC Pride Grand Marshall, the Out 100, LGBTQ Nation’s Instagram Advocate of the year, and the Harvard Varsity Director’s Award. In addition to being one of the top LGBTQ+ educators and advocates, Schuyler is a leading DEI speaker and advisor. Schuyler also hosts the podcast “Dear Schuyler” on gender and culture and is the creator of the LaneChanger.com gender literacy online learning series. He holds a degree in Cognitive Neuroscience and Evolutionary Psychology from Harvard, and works in four research labs focusing in clinical psychology and public health.
Dylan Mulvaney (she/they) is a trans actress, comic, and content creator of the viral TikTok series “Days of Girlhood,” which raised $200,000 for The Trevor Project to support LGBTQIA+ teens in crisis. Winner of the 2022 “TikTok Trailblazer” award, Queerty “Groundbreaker Award,” THEM “Now Award,” a Webby “Special Achievement Award,” and many others, Mulvaney was invited by President Joe Biden to speak at the White House about trans rights. Pre-pandemic, Dylan played Elder White in the “Book of Mormon” Broadway musical. She now lives in LA where she works to bring trans stories to the mainstream.
Anti-transgender legislation is being introduced in state governments around the United States in record-breaking numbers. Trans people are under attack in sports, healthcare, school curriculum, bathrooms, bars, and nearly every walk of life. He/She/They addresses fundamental topics, from why being transgender is not a choice and why pronouns are important, to more complex issues including how gender-affirming healthcare can be lifesaving and why allowing trans youth to play sports is good for all kids. With a relatable narrative rooted in facts, science, and history, Schuyler helps restore common sense and humanity to a discussion that continues to be divisively coopted and deceptively politicized.
Schuyler Bailar didn’t set out to be an activist, but his very public transition to the Harvard men’s swim team put him in the spotlight. His choice to be open about his transition and share his experience has touched people around the world. His plain-spoken education has evolved into tireless advocacy for inclusion and collective liberation. In He/She/They, Schuyler uses storytelling and the art of conversation to give us the essential language and context of gender, meeting everyone where they are and paving the way for understanding, acceptance, and, most importantly: connection. He/She/They speaks to trans folks directly, answering the question, “does it get better?” with a resounding yes, celebrating radical trans joy. Myth-busting, affirming, compassionate, and fierce, He/She/They is a crucial, urgent--and lifesaving--book that forever changes the conversation about gender.
