Mae Martin - Can Everyone Please Calm Down? Mae Martin's Guide To 21st Century Sexuality
Are you gay? Are you male? Are you straight? Are you female? These aren't necessarily questions with yes/no answers. Gender and sexuality aren't black and white, binary concepts - they can be fluid, and are often on a spectrum: 40% of people under 25 don't identify as gay or straight. Society hasn't necessarily caught up with this, though, as comedian Mae Martin notes in this comic look at sexuality, dating and gender in the 21st century. She notes, partly in humour, partly in frustration, that it's 2017, and we are still labelling people by who they sleep with.
Expanding on themes raised in her BBC Radio 4 show Mae Martin's Guide To 21st Century Sexuality, she aims to break down barriers and start conversations. With a blend of personal anecdotes and clever social observations, Mae gently pokes fun at stereotypes, pigeon-holing and intolerance in this truly millennial book.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
