Gender: Your Guide by Dr. Lee Airton

An authentic and accessible guide to understanding—and engaging in—today’s gender conversation. On sale now.

The days of two genders—male, female; boy, girl; blue, pink—are over, if they ever existed at all. Gender is now a global conversation, and one that is constantly evolving. More people than ever before are openly living their lives as transgender men or women, and many transgender people are coming out as neither men or women, instead living outside of the binary. Gender is changing, and this change is gaining momentum.
