Transgender 101

In Chapter 10, part 2 of Not the Zombie Apocalypse, Steve and Laszlo talk through Laszlo’s difficulty with accepting what he’s learned about Steve.

Steve isn’t interested in teaching Transgender 101, but for anyone who wants to know more, Tom Cho helped me to compile the following list of resources.

The US GLAAD organisation actually has Transgender 101 on its site and provides an excellent overview of this umbrella term that describes a wide number of issues of gender identity.

Gender Questioning (PDF)is a booklet filled with great information and support services.

ACON, a NSW organisation, has some great resources including videos and booklets on gender identity for trans youth and their families.

Australia’s National LGBTI Health Alliance has created the Inclusive Language Guide: Respecting people of intersex, trans and gender diverse experience (PDF)

This terrific video from the Niche Idaho campaign

If you know of any other resources in your state or country, please add them to the comments!

My very special thanks to Tom Cho for his help and support in collecting this information. I highly recommend Tom’s book, Look Who’s Morphing.
