[image-2] Join an online book discussion this Friday, held as part of We Are Family's Instagram Live series called "Couch Connections." The livestream’s focus is a discussion around the new book Beyond the Gender Binary, written by Alok Vaid-Menon, a gender non-conforming writer/artist.

Vaid-Menon will be featured in the Instagram Live to discuss their book as well as their ongoing effort to provide free copies of their book to America's LGBTQI+ youth.

We Are Family is also partnering with Vaid-Menon to give away 50 copies of the new book to LGBTQI+ youth under the age of 24. With both the livestream and the giveaway, the goal is to empower people to rise against discrimination experienced by the LGBTQI+ community.

Based in North Charleston, We Are Family is a nonprofit advocacy organization that serves as a safe space for LGBTQI+ youth through direct support, leadership development and community engagement.
