Our entrance is wheelchair accessible but not our bathroom which is down a narrow flight of stairs. Bathroom is a single stall and open to people of all gender identities.

You are the expert on your own gender - you know you better than anyone else. Our genders may be girl, or boy, or both, or neither, or something else entirely. You might be a girl, and do it totally different from another girl, and you are both right!

Transphobia is intolerance of any part of the range of gender identity, and gets in the way of all of us being our fabulous selves. This accessible, illustrated book offers information, quizzes, comics and true-to-life scenarios to help kids better understand gender identity and determine what they can do to identify and counter transphobia in their schools, homes and communities. Considered from the viewpoint of gender explorers, gender enforcers and witnesses, transphobic behaviour is identified, examined and put into a context that kids can use to understand and accept themselves and others for whatever gender they are -- even if that's no gender at all!
For ages 7-11
