A short story of prejudice, acceptance and human nature through the eyes of a young non-binary person, Skylar.
Prepare for candid exploration of diverse gender identities, polyamory and mental health in this introduction to Luna Tibling’s new LGBT+ series Beyond the Binary.
My mum’s new boyfriend refuses to accept me for who I am.
It’s already a challenge for a non-binary person like me to get by in the world, but it’s been even harder since my dad’s premature death. Mum has been with Barry for a while now, and the longer he stays in my life, the more toxic he seems to become.
Of course, it doesn’t help that I’m also in a constant battle with depression, aggravated by the questionable ethics of the company I work for. The best support available to me is my invaluable love life, but it would be impossible to reason with Barry if he knew the nature of our relationship…
The tension and uncertainty increase with each day the issue goes unresolved. I’ll have to face Barry eventually, but I’ve no idea how to do that, or what the consequences will be.
One thing’s for sure – I won’t be doing it alone.
How I Found Myself is the introductory novella to Luna Tibling’s series Beyond the Binary. The series delves deeply into mental health and all aspects of the LGBT+ community, including the experiences of transgender and non-binary characters, polyamory, asexuality and the difficulties of coming out of the closet.
