Raising My Rainbow: Adventures In Raising A Fabulous, Gender Creative Son by Lori Duron
C.J. is gender variant or gender nonconforming, whichever you prefer. Whatever the term, Lori has a boy who likes girl stuff—really likes girl stuff. He floats on the gender-variation spectrum from super-macho-masculine on the left all the way to super-girly-feminine on the right. He's not all pink and not all blue. He's a muddled mess or a rainbow creation. Lori and her family choose to see the rainbow.
Lori's blog (the same title as the book) is great and very popular, read by over a million readers in more than 170 countries and is used in gender studies courses at over 35 colleges and universities.
I'm enjoying reading the book, which feels poignant, honest, and important. It's an excellent resource for parents (and anyone who wants to get some insight into a gender-non-conforming child's life.)
