How can you explain this to your neighbors and family? How can parents advocate for their children in elementary schools? What do doctors specializing in gender variant children recommend? What issues should your college-bound trans child be thinking about when selecting a school?

These questions and more are answered in this book offering a deeper understanding of gender variant and transgender children and teens.
