"The ABC’s of LGBT+ is making it easier to understand our identities. With humor, fun discussion, and adorable infographics, no other book provides such a comprehensive read on terms and phrases in the queer and trans community."
and Everyone Is Gay says,
"I have worked with LGBTQIA people and their friends and family for nearly a decade, and I have never seen a resource that pays such meticulous and thorough attention to the many nuances of sexuality and gender identity. Ashley Mardell's The ABC's of LGBT serves as a powerful tool for those that might be questioning their own identity, as well as for those seeking a deeper knowledge of the many, varied identities that exist in relation to our attractions, desires, and personal understandings of self."
"Ashley celebrates the wonderful, evolving language of sexuality and gender. By showcasing personal narratives and providing explanations that are fun, engaging, and accessible for every kind of reader, The ABC’s of LGBT+ provides a way for all of us to think about our unique experience and gives us just the help we need to communicate it to others."
- Carlos Bermudez,
Manager of Online Programming and Community Development at Gender Spectrum.

I also love and really respect how open she was about the information she didn't know, didn't have a source for, or might be wrong about. I mean obviously she did a truly impressive amount of research on this book but since sexuality and gender are such complex topics that mean different things to everyone it's hard to nail down a specific definition that everyone's happy with for a lot of the terms. She was very thorough in making sure to explain all sides of the argument when it came to controversial terms. She was also very open about when she was not in the position to define terms that were not hers and she couldn't find people who DID identify within the community those terms belonged to (specifically this was in regards to gender identities that belong to specific cultures such as two-spirit).
She's also very open to discussion about the book and feedback that she can incorporate into a sequel or fix later (maybe in a later edition? Or I think she also has a Tumblr she's set up for any corrections or additions that need to be made). Sexuality and gender are such difficult and complex topics that I have so much respect towards Ashley for taking on this incredible project and being so open to the input of others and criticism. She made it very clear in the book that she was not writing it alone. She had practically an entire army of people helping her edit, fact check, and contributing stories which I think is so, so important in books like this.
This is truly a wonderful book and I cannot recommend it enough for anyone who is trying to figure out their own sexuality/gender, trying to find the right label for them, trying to understand a loved one's experiences, or just interested in learning! Seriously, bravo Ashley.
