I'll be your guide as we explore gender.
We looked for a 101 book and didn't see one yet. So we set out to make our own.
Education is for sharing! Please enjoy and distribute widely.
my friends & I saw a need for more education.
An illustrated book about gender- similar to educational children's books- with no age limit. All hand-drawn graphics and lots of color. It's about 90 pages long, and readable in one sitting.
- what is gender?
- gender versus sex
- gender through history
- gender across cultures
- Gender Identity
- transgender umbrella
- full surveys
Who made this, anyway?
We're four committed individuals from Houston, Texas. The creators have a range of transgender identities from androgynous genderqueers to butches to drag kings to trans men.
If we've confused you already, don't worry! That's why we wanted to make the book- to help tell our own stories and those of the ones we love. But we didn't do it alone. Co-authoring the book are hundreds of trans and cis voices from across the globe who participated in our survey and interviews. Learn more about us here. Join the team here.
