New book for transgender children

When Jo Hirst was unable to find a suitable resource to help her young son describe his experience of being transgender, Hirst decided to write her own. The Gender Fairy is her new book for very young transgender children to read with their parents or teachers, the first book of its kind in Australia.

The Gender Fairy begins with a story of gender stereotyping: two babies who are born and bought presents in pink or blue. And the gender fairy  (who is non-binary) answers questions for two young transgender children. Can I use a male toilet? (Yes, you are a boy). Can I wear girl’s clothes? (Yes, wear the clothes that make you feel comfortable).

Complete with parent and teacher notes by provided by Roz Ward from Safe Schools Coalition Victoria. Read a review of the book here
