I have recently been working on a research project and publication that combines my work with TransYouth Family Allies and my Ph.D. studies in education. The study addresses portrayals of gender variant and transgender characters in young adult literature. A professor of education and I have been looking at the possible ways for high school teachers to engage in professional development activities geared towards promoting understanding.
We choose to focus on a book group that read young adult literature. I may write more about the process, texts we used, and some of the things we found soon. Today, I wanted to take a moment to steer people toward a wonderful online resource called TRANScending Identities through the San Francisco Public Library.
Check out the resource and let me know what ya'll think in the comments.
