We have created several resource sheets to increase individuals’ understanding of gender identity, 性取向, and the legal process for name and gender marker changes.

We are also able to create specific resource guides that are company/organization specific. We have a general resource guide for educators that includes lesson plans, Department of Elementary and Secondary 教育 Department guidelines, video/books suggestions and much more.
