Goetz, MD, MS, a resident in psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania and Eidos Affiliated Faculty, has recently unveiled their new book.

Their work, informed by personal experiences as a non-binary/trans, queer, neurodivergent, chronically ill, Jewish individual, sheds light on these intricate concepts in an accessible manner. “An exceptional book! Beautifully written and illustrated, it gently guides you through the foundational connects and terminology related to gender in a welcoming way.” Dr Alex Keuroghlian.
