COMICS
To be non-binary is to define oneself outside the gender system; to identify as neither male nor female, both at the same time or even something completely different. Kvár is a documentary comic about being non-binary that examines the gender dualism of our society, gendering in language, gender in Icelandic legislation and what it is like to be non-binary. The story is based on interviews with six non-binary people about their experiences and opinions. The book was published in 250 copies and is the first books on this subject to be written and published in Icelandic. It is also the first Icelandic documentary comic.
