Gender: Your Guide: A Gender-Friendly Primer on What to Know, What to Say, and What to Do in the New Gender Culture

By Lee Airton, Ph.D.

“I wish I had a copy of this book to give to every teacher, principal, counsellor, parent, partner, boss and co-worker of a trans, gender variant or non-binary person in the world. I sincerely do. This book is for anyone who wants to learn and do better by trans and non-binary people. Thoughtfully and compassionately written by someone who has lived experience of navigating the binary world in a non-binary body and mind, Dr. Lee Airton will talk you through it all without pretence, or judgement. It’s not just a How-To guide to pronouns, gender neutral language and dismantling our very cisgendered systems, it is something so much more valuable: it’s a Why Should We All guide to building a more accessible and just world for people of all genders.”
