Books To Read: Evolution's Rainbow

Awesome book! Evolution's Rainbow: Diversity, Gender and Sexuality in Nature and People is all about gender diversity in nature, particularly among fish and small mammals, although primates are covered as well. The last portion of the book looks at human society's acceptance, and lack of, of its trangender and gender variant members and builds a strong case for civil rights advocacy. Written by biologist and transexual woman Joan Roughgarden.
