Being Alice by Marcus Tallberg


They've called her Oliver since the day she was born. Alice hates that. She has never been or ever wanted to be Oliver. Alone, abused and suicidal, Alice yearns to break free "from the lie that has been my life." That life changes forever the day she meets her fairy godmother, the wise and witty Vincent, a genderfluid drag star named Ursula Undress. Under Ursula's wing, Alice embarks on a tumultuous, bittersweet and empowering journey to become herself. 

My Queer Teen Life by Marcus Tallberg & Emma Björck


Mattias is a young and a bit hysterical guy who struggles to find himself in a world where family, school and emotions make everything difficult. At school he feel like he doesn't exist, and the only friend he has is Tove.


Tove is popular, good looking, humble and naive. This creates problems for her when she chooses to put her trust in the wrong person. For the first time in her life, she feels that not even God can help her. The perfect life she has, outwardly, begins to crack and it does not get better when Mattias suddenly begins to behave strangely - that is, more than he usually...

Perfectly Bella by Camilla Gisslow


How does it feel to be a girl when you have a penis? And how does Bella want others to treat her?

The Orphan by Marcus Tallberg


After the Disaster, the ice caps are gone. The planet is toxic. The world's remaining superpowers have united as Ela, a para-military planet-nation governed by the authoritarian President Daegal. On a mission to restore the world to its pre-Disaster glory he rules the people of Ela by fear, violence and propaganda. Frequent terrorist attacks are blamed on the hated and hunted Tabia, people born with superhuman powers, who appeared after the Disaster.

 When the President's military school Bionbyr drafts Freija for mandatory service, she does not resist. She dreams of saving her struggling orphanage home with the salary she'll receive once she completes her training. Far from the rusting towers and rotting streets of her hometown, Bionbyr is deceptively luxurious, an enormous glistening white dome floating between shrunken, lifeless continents.

 

It is here that Freija and her orphan sister Embla, implanted with microchips, tracked, observed, and tested, discover how far the Authority will go to preserve the dark secrets of Ela. And how far they must go to preserve their own.

Come Out, Come In by Andrés Esteche


We take freedom for granted. We take democracy for granted. But that is not the case for everyone.

 

In this book you'll hear from six LGBTQ-persons. They have fled from war, death threats, blood and assault. They travel to Sweden with their own individual emotional baggage, in the hope that they will be safe here. But there are difficulties here as well. When you are used to a reality where loving someone of the same sex, or identifying as something other than the gender you were born with equals death, how easy do you think it is to tell a perfect stranger about who you really are? A stranger who doesn't understand your language. And then you realise that the interpreter is a friend of your family. What would you have done?

Human Behind the Penis by Jonas Norén


Human behind the penis is a book with photos of the male genitalia, depicting and addressing the vast variety of shapes and sizes of the penis, and the stigma caused by the owner’s concern and shame about its size or shape, not being aware that there’s in fact a wide range of varieties.

 

A book teaching you how to appreciate and love your own penis.
