Charis welcomes Juno Dawson in conversation with E.R. Anderson for a discussion of What's the T?: The Guide to All Things Trans and/or Nonbinary. Discover what it means to be a young transgender and/or non-binary person in the twenty-first century in this candid and funny guide for teens from the bestselling author of This Book is Gay. This event is co-sponsored by the Gender-Creative Parenting Collection and Trans & Friends Youth and Adult groups.
In What's the T? Stonewall ambassador and bestselling author Juno Dawson is back again, this time with everything you've wanted to know about labels and identities and offering uncensored advice on coming out, sex, and relationships with her trademark humor and lightness of touch. It is informative, helpful, optimistic, and funny but with a good dose of reality and some of the things that can downright suck too.
The companion title to the groundbreaking This Book Is Gay, What's the T? tackles the complex realities of growing up trans with honesty and humor and is joyfully illustrated by gender non-conforming artist Soofiya.
This book is for:
Anyone with questions
Parents of trans and/or non-binary kids
Educators looking for advice about the transgender community
