Brochure: Genderqueer sexual health

Download the genderqueer sexual health booklet | Order a hard copy

Summary

(from genderqueer.tumblr.com)

The Trans Youth Sexual Health booklet was produced by trans people aged 16-24 at Gendered Intelligence, in partnership with Terrence Higgins Trust. The project allowed young trans people to get together as a group and learn about sexual health, and also to discuss how to make sexual health information more relevant to trans people. As a result, a group of young people produced this information booklet, which is aimed at trans youth and their partners.

The Simply Trans booklet was created by the WA Gay and Lesbian Community Services organisation to explain what the various kinds of transgender expression are. It includes good explanations of what sex and gender are.

NOTE: The explanation of cross-dresser, while technically accurate, doesn’t take into consideration that genderqueer people consistently dress in the clothing of the “opposite” sex.

Exceloo gender neutral toilets

Automated Public Toilet Solutions | Exeloo Locations | Exeloo.

Gender Spectrum – by Rose Moore

We all need to pee!

Exceloo is an automated public toilet which has been installed all around Australia.

They are designed to be accessible and are totally gender-neutral toilets.

While we don’t have any affiliation with the company, we do think that a toilet doesn’t need to have a gender, and Exceloo seems to have this attitude too (either deliberately or accidentally)!
