Published: Adams Media - June 11th, 2019

This book was incredibly helpful for us, and it's the frst thing we recommend to family, friends, and educators. It is primarily a resource for folks who have a transgender or gender-nonconforming loved one (or who simply want to better understand their fellow community members), and unlike many similar books assumes much more of a good-faith starting point. You're reading this book because you genuinely care.
