Synopsis

Gender Identity The Ultimate Teen Guide by Cynthia L. Winfield

The book examines what is meant by sex and gender -from typical gender roles and stereotypes, through those who transcend the usual categories of male and female. In addition to historical and factual information, teen voices and popular media's depictions of gender issues are included. Gender Identity: The Ultimate Teen Guide is written for all teens with an interest in gender-what it is, how it is expressed-especially those teens questioning their own (or a friend or family member's) gender identity. Straight (heterosexual) and LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) youth, and the adults who live and work with them will want to read it, as well as educators, counselors, school board members, and parents.
