Can society operate without gender and even biological sex classifications? Queer Post-Gender Ethics argues that we could exist, formulate our relationships and be sexual in more androgynous ways. Outlining a political vision for how a post-gender sociality might be achieved, it presents queer social practices for a truly gender neutral world.

"This text challenges the reader with the analysis of theory and practice and does encourage a critical reading and thinking of selected theorists to prompt a move past normative notions of sex/gender. This book encourages the reader to consider new ways of thinking and it questions normative sex/gender assumptions charting the expansive possibilities of moving beyond the constraints and limitations of either/or binaries." (Nikki Fairchild, Women┤s Studies International Forum, Vol. 57, July-August, 2016)

"In Queer Post-Gender Ethics, Lucy Nicholas offers a utopian model for post-gender selfhood, one that moves beyond the presumed inescapability of binary gender and into an imaginative ┤androgynous ethos┤ featuring an ┤ethics of reciprocity.┤ ... Queer Post-Gender Ethics is especially useful for those exploring the limitations and pleasures of gender in advanced queer and feminist theory classes and discussion groups as a productive response to the question of whether binary gender is, or should be, truly eradicable." (Contemporary Sociology, Vol. 45 (1), January, 2016)
