Gender is an immensely broad and at times confusing topic, and one that is vitally important to the LGBTQ community. Even those of us exposed regularly to a vast spectrum of gender identities and presentations can sometimes find ourselves feeling adrift, and in need of a straightforward road map, so to speak.

Enter the creators of The Genderbook, a "colorful visual primer on the world of gender."

This ninety page book approaches what is an often confounding topic from the perspective of an illustrated children's book, appropriate for all ages. The creative team behind the project spent the better part of three years researching and crafting its content, including extensive surveys and interviews with people throughout the diverse landscape of gender and identity.

A small collection of vital highlights is already available in the form of The Gender Booklet, which can be read online or downloaded free of charge for printing. The full version of the The GenderBook will be available for pre-order on Kickstarted starting December 1st.

Consider donating copies to your local libraries or LGBT organizations, or just having one for your own library and reference.
