My Gender Workbook


Kate Bornstein. Routledge, 1998

Key Elements:
This twelve chapter book contains questionnaires and quizzes to encourage the reader to question their own ideas and the personal perspective on gender. The particulars of the book are very original; among the original ideas is the 'gender- identity- power pyramid 'to help place gender in the context of other elements in our society like class, race, and economic status along with the role that these things play in shaping our identity. There is the 'perfectly gendered questionnaire' which encourages a 360 degree evaluation of gender. The book also covers related topic like spirituality, and expands on the importance of other related topics.

Families Together LondonFamilies Together London is a London-based support group for the parents, families and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. Many parents, families and friends find it difficult to deal with finding out a child, family member or friend is LGBT, and they are not sure how to support them. We may not have all the answers, but, between us, we have all been through these experiences. As parents we realise that our children need our support so they can lead healthy, fulfilled lives.
