Australia's book censor has rejected a push by anti-LGBTQIA+ activist to ban memoir titled Gender Queer.
The book was referred to the Classification Board after Queensland Police was tipped off by conservative campaigner Bernard Gaynor.
The Australian Classification Board has now classified non-binary author and cartoonist Maia Kobabe's Gender Queer: A Memoir as unrestricted with the rating M (Mature). Not Recommended for Readers Under 15 Years.
The award-winning book has
become one of the most banned books in America over its depictions of LGBTQIA+ sex and sexuality, including explicit illustrations and descriptions.
