What would you do if the world told you that you didn’t exist? Lauren, a former Division I basketball player for whom identifying as an athlete transcends gender, tackles that question head-on by living each day as nonbinary. Featuring stories from other gender-nonconforming people, WE EXIST outpaces a society that is both slow to catch up and quick to judge, and proves with confidence and joy that nonbinary people are declaring their true selves, claiming space, experiencing loving relationships, and thriving in this world.
