'Eye-opening, intelligent, thoughtful as well as sassy and surprising - a must read' -- Lorraine Kelly
'This book does many things, it educates, explains, describes and shares personal experiences, but all of that goodness is wrapped up in a beautiful layer of genuine kindness and care for the reader, who is possibly, young, coming out and in some way or another exploring gender. Full of wit, wisdom and warmth' -- Juno Roche, author of Trans Power and Queer Sex

Release the Beast is quintessential Bimini, hitting the nail on the head with her irreverent wit and infectious personality. Ms Boulash, you're definitely in the history books now!' -- Jamie Windust, author of In Their Shoes

'Bimini has written a book that mixes the personal, political, humour and glamour that surrounds them. A triumph for UK queer culture, this book welcomes their new audience in to the queer present and past, with a clear argument for a gender fluid future. It felt like it was part diary entry, part history lecture and part recording from a real good chat in a smoking area in East London - the best combination for a book!' -- Travis Alabanza, award winning writer, performer and theatre maker

-- Riyadh Khalaf
