Coming out resources

Just realized your identity as a transgender person? That can be a fun, enlightening, and kind of scary experience. When you're ready, you might want to tell other people about it!


Don't worry, that's part of why we wrote and drew the GENDER book- as a little toolbox for sharing your gender with the world. Try printing out a page or two to start a conversation, or give it to a loved one as a little 'homework' reading after you tell them about yourself. Need more help and encouragement?
