What is gender diversity? Kit, Amy, and Lara explain all in this illustrated guide for children aged seven and up.
Meet Kit, a twelve year old who identifies as trans and is currently going through female to male medical transition. Kit explains what it is like to transition and how his friends, family, and teachers can help by using the right pronouns, respecting his name change, introducing gender neutral toilets at school, and much more. With illustrations throughout, this is an ideal way to start conversations about gender diversity in the classroom or at home. It is suitable for readers aged seven and above and also includes a useful list of recommended readings, organisations, and websites for further information and support.
