Jules Wagner - Bookseller in Saratoga Springs

My name is Jules. I'm a born and raised Saratogian and my family from my mom's side has been in this area for generations. I'm non-binary and asexual, and use they/them/theirs pronouns. I'm constantly reading and researching to stay up to date about the latest in the LGBTQ Community. I'm also a mental health advocate, and an animal lover. I hope to help make a difference for the community through my work with the Bookstore. I look forward to helping in your search for knowledge and new experiences!

This book is unique for a non-fiction book. It approaches the reader as an “create-your-own-adventure” book. It takes the reader on a gender journey through life and ha smany different scenarios and outcomes. This could be a great introductory book to younger people who are just beginning to learn about gender and how it coincides with society. Even for someone who isn’t transgender or questioning, I still feel it could be a very fun read. Not to mention educational as well! ~ Reviewed by Jules Wagner

This book mentions every aspect of the asexual spectrums, and goes into in-depth detail about all the different sides of the spectrum, and more. I discovered at the age of 17 what asexuality is. As I researched it more, I came to realize I am a part of the 1% population that is asexual. People usually ask me a lot about asexuality and, sometimes, I don’t have exact answers. Or if I do know, I can’t always put it into words or phrases that would be understandable by someone who is not on the spectrum. I wish I had this book available to me years ago when I was just starting to figure all this out. I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking to understand themself or someone they know on the spectrum better. It is also a good resource for students doing any sort of research project on the subject. ~ Reviewed by Jules Wagner

This book explains the experiences of the transgender community, from the perspective of someone who is transgender. Everything about this book just made me feel so accepted and welcomed in the community, gave me a warm feeling when reading it during the cold February winter while recovering from wisdom teeth surgery. Gender: Your Guide is a great resource for anyone questioning, anyone in the community who feels alone, anyone who knows someone in the community and wishes to support them, and is also non-binary friendly! ~ Reviewed by Jules Wagner
