Transcending Gender 2012 Reading Challenge hosted by Bibrary Book Lust
This year's challenge is all about reads that transcend gender . . . those that play with stereotypes, blur the gender binary, and challenge traditional gender roles. All genres are fair game, so long as they do something interesting or unique with the concept of gender.
It could be a feminist read that challenges gender stereotypes; a story that features a society where gender roles are reversed; a book with a transvestite, transsexual, intersex, or genderqueer character; a more fanciful/imaginative novel that explores alien or alternative genders; or a story that features some sort of magical transformation or shapeshifting that crosses gender lines.
The scope of the challenge is intentionally broad, and as much about how we perceive a book as it is about the books themselves.
