A groundbreaking look at the lives of transgender children and their families Some “boys” will only wear dresses; some “girls” refuse to wear dresses; in both cases, as Ann Travers shows in this fascinating account of the lives of transgender kids, these are often more than just wardrobe choices. Travers shows that from very early ages, some at two and three years old, these kids find themselves to be different from the sex category that was assigned to them at birth. How they make their voices heard—to their parents and friends, in schools, in public spaces, and through the courts—is the focus of this remarkable and groundbreaking book. Based on interviews with transgender kids, ranging in age from 4 to 20, and their parents, and over five years of research in the US and Canada, The Trans Generation offers a rare look into what it is like to grow up as a trans child. From daycare to birthday parties and from the playground to the school bathroom, Travers takes the reader inside the day-to-day realities of trans kids who regularly experience crisis as a result of the restrictive ways in which sex categories regulate their lives and put pressure on them to deny their internal sense of who they are in gendered terms. As a transgender activist and as an advocate for trans kids, Travers is able to document from first-hand experience the difficulties of growing up trans and the challenges that parents can face. The book shows the incredible time, energy, and love that these parents give to their children, even in the face of, at times, unsupportive communities, schools, courts, health systems, and government laws. Keeping in mind that all trans kids are among the most vulnerable to bullying, violent attacks, self-harm, and suicide, and that those who struggle with poverty, racism, lack of parental support, learning differences, etc, are extremely at risk, Travers offers ways to support all trans kids through policy recommendations and activist interventions. Ultimately, the book is meant to open up options for kids’ own gender self-determination, to question the need for the sex binary, and to highlight ways that cultural and material resources can be redistributed more equitably. The Trans Generation offers an essential and important new understanding of childhood.

This book provides a comprehensive account of the educational experiences of students, parents, and educators—transgender and cisgender—in the context of current debates about the inclusion of transgender people in schools.

Reporting on empirical analyses conducted by the authors, the book makes a unique contribution to thinking about gender diversity in schools and advocates for the broadening of educational approaches beyond narrow gender binaries.

Lexi ist reich, cool, ein It-Girl – und heroinsüchtig. Nach einer Überdosis landet sie in der Clarity-Klinik.

The importance of creating safe spaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) students in the school environment cannot be overstated. It is one of the most prominent issues facing school professionals today, and its success has lasting, positive effects on the entire student body. Drawing on the expertise of researchers and practitioners, Creating Safe and Supportive Learning Environments provides a comprehensive examination of the topics most relevant for school professionals. The first section lays out the theoretical foundation and background school professionals need to understand the social and political trends that impact LGBTQ individuals, the development of sexual orientation and gender identity, risk and resilience factors, and the intersection of LGBTQ identity with other aspects of diversity. The second section explores topics critical for the development of safe, supportive school environments, including understanding legal and ethical mandates, training school personnel, addressing bullying and harassment, and developing inclusive classrooms. Special topics related to counseling LGBTQ students, supporting families of LGBTQ students, becoming an ally and advocate in the schools, and connecting with community resources are also covered.

Die globale sexuelle Revolution, vorangetrieben von UN und EU, hat sich zunächst hinter dem Rücken der Öffentlichkeit in Politik, Institutionen und Ausbildungseinrichtungen eingeschlichen. Inzwischen ist daraus längst ein gewaltiges gesellschaftliches Umerziehungsprogramm geworden, welches die Voraussetzungen einer freiheitlichen Gesellschaft zerstört und zunehmend totalitäre Züge annimmt. In diesem Buch lesen Sie, was man heute nicht mehr sagen darf über • UN und EU als Betreiber der sexuellen Revolution • die große Umerziehung zum sexualisierten Gender-Menschen • die politische Vergewaltigung der Sprache • die Seuche der Pornografie • die Homosexuellen-Bewegung • Sex-Erziehung in Schule und Kindergarten • die schiefe Ebene zum Totalitarismus im neuen Gewand "Dass Gabriele Kuby den Mut hat, die Bedrohung unserer Freiheit durch eine antihumanistische Ideologie beim Namen zu nennen, bringt ihr möglicherweise Feindseligkeit, ja sogar Hetze ein. Sie hat stattdessen für ihre Aufklärungsarbeit unser aller Dank verdient. Möglichst viele Menschen sollten dieses Buch lesen, um aufmerksam zu werden, was auf sie zukommt, wenn sie sich nicht wehren". (Aus dem Geleitwort von Prof. Robert Spaemann)

When a single child comes out, their entire family will transition, along with their community. On The Couch With Dr. Angello is an eye-opening guide to navigating social spaces when most don't quite understand the process of changing genders. Dr. Angello offers emotional help and unwavering support as parents with trans identified children ride the waves of grief, acceptance and eventual healing. After years of televised appearances this book comes at a time when the sensationalism of transgender identity has calmed-a time when hearts and ears across the nation are daringly sympathetic and finally able to aid and uplift the transgender experience. In this fascinating examination of budding identity all audiences have something to gain as Dr. Michele Angello uncovers the behind the scenes journey parents, teachers, pastors, children and medical professionals will take in order to support gender variant youth. Grappling with the real life situations of transitioning in public, coming out to school principals and dealing with family dynamics, Dr. Angello leaves no topic unturned from faith and spirituality to hormone therapy. On The Couch With Dr. Angello might very well be an undercover Trans 101 course. Camouflaged by its diligent story telling, this would-be self-help book is a reassuring response to youth who are yearning for guidance as they angle to step into their right skins. Skillfully and uniquely Dr. Angello addresses the tender experience of discovering who our best allies are. As she has in practice with many teenagers she addresses the angst in developing crushes, dating and sex; the hope in fostering relationships with the ever-important cheerleaders; and provides action steps to seek out and create safe space in school, in church and the doctor's office. As a source identifying the true complexities of human anatomy this book is a powerful testament to where the limitless destinations a heart felt pursuit for authenticity can lead. Chronicling a 14-year practice, Dr. Angello inspires hope, challenges boundaries and demonstrates just how powerful unconditional love can be. Regardless of your place on the gender spectrum On The Couch With Dr. Angello is a book you won't want to put down.

Students in high school and middle school often struggle to fit in. For students who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered (LGBT), or Questioning (LGBTQ), fitting in can be especially difficult, and school is all too often an unwelcoming and unsafe place.

Schools have a responsibility to ensure the safety of all students, and more and more state legislatures requiring schools to enact and enforce anti-bullying policies that include explicit protection of LGBT students.The laminated guide LGBTQ Youth: An Educator's Guide is a valuable and practical resource for educators, many of whom receive little or no formal training on the issue of LGBTQ youth. Features include: “LGBTQ 101”- Statistics, terminology, applicable legislation, and guidelines devised by professional educational organizations, including the National Education Association (NEA), the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). Detailed recommendations of what schools and individual educators can do to welcome and support LGBTQ youth. Information on nationally recognized organizations that offer extensive free resources, including materials targeted at educators/staff, the entire student body, LGBTQ students, and parents.

Dieser Band widmet sich dem nach wie vor hochaktuellen Querschnittsthema "Sex and Gender" mit dem Ziel, die diesbezuglichen theoretischen Stromungen, wissenschaftlichen Fragestellungen und empirischen Ergebnisse aus einer interdisziplinaren Perspektive zu bundeln. Das bereichsubergreifende Konstrukt Geschlecht wird hier insofern von anerkannten Kolleginnen und Kollegen ganz verschiedener Fachdisziplinen beleuchtet. Die behandelten Thematiken lassen sich hierbei drei grossen Teilbereichen zuordnen, wodurch auch die hohe Relevanz fur die verschiedenen Lebensphasen und gesellschaftlichen Kontexte evident wird: Entwicklung im Lebenslauf, Erziehung und Bildung, gesellschaftliche Strukturen und Integrationsprozesse."
