More about the Books:

The Gender Generations Project (formerly titled the Trans Tipping Point) is a series of retreats and workshops for trans, non-binary, Two Spirit, and otherwise non-cisgender youth. At these events, youth are paired with mentors and work collaboratively to engage in creative projects of self-expression in the realms of fine arts, such as writing, visual art, and performance. The works being generated evolved into two book projects: one for post-secondary education and one for youth.

Trans Youth Stories is an essential sourcebook that organizes the brilliant creative work of trans youth from the Gender Generations Project along side a series of academic responses born from leading scholars and mentors engaging in discussion with youth creators. Combining academia and first-hand accounts this book is designed for courses in education, gender studies, child and youth care, counselling and more.

The first-hand creative expressions of trans youth were also collected into a volume entitled Growing Up Trans, forthcoming from Orca Book Publisher. Growing Up Trans bookends these creative works with tools and tips from the youth and their mentors for all young people, transgender or not, that will build understanding, acceptance and support for the trans community.
