AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP ALL STUDENTS LEARN AND GROW

Most educators, parents and students will admit that even conven­tional gender roles present formidable challenges for adolescents, so it isn't difficult to see how the lives and appearances of transgender people can seem confusing, mysterious - even threatening.

But transgender is real - not a sickness or a delusion. And for trans­gender people, navigating even everyday experiences can be diffi­cult...even dangerous, in ways the rest of us might find hard to imag­ine. Transgender students become targets for discrimination, bullying and violence much more often, but suppression of their specific iden­ties is also unhealthy, frequently leading to depression, addiction and suicide. Conflict aside, transgender people want what the same thing most of us want - a chance to lead satisfying lives.

Fortunately, widespread experience demonstrates that when stu­dents gain better understanding of the nature of gender identi­ty, discrimination decreases, along with bullying. In an inclusive school environment, all students are better able to focus on - and share in - opportunites that really matter.

And that's what Just Gender for High School is created to help ac­complish - a change in attitude through better understanding. It's a program created by nationally respected experts in resolving trans­gender issues for institutions, and proven to work in pilot programs. For only $89, it can be available at your school or institution. 

Educational Reviews

"Just Gender for High School video and discussion guide is a viable tool for our schools during critical times of our students' and families' deeper exploration and understanding of gender identity and gender expression. With sensitivity and education, this powerful video helps us to more clearly embrace the challenges of persons, young and older, who identify as transgender in hopes of developing empathy and to ensure safety for transgender youth, staff and families in our schools and communities. A timely and worthwhile educational tool for our school populations." De Palazzo, Broward County Public Schools LGBTQ Coordinator
