Gender Heroes


Prepare to meet the gender trailblazers of past and present - who dress and express themselves however they choose!

Featuring icons from across art, sports, fashion, music, politics, civil rights and the media, this vibrantly illustrated book introduces children age 5+ to transgender, non-binary and genderqueer role-models who dare to be different - and are conquering the world as they go.

Packed with the triumphant tales of 25 gender heroes - including Laverne Cox, Elliott Page, Marsha P. Johnson, Gavin Grimm and Alok Vaid-Menon, as well as a glossary of key terms, this is an inspirational introduction for kids and educators alike - and a timely reminder that not all heroes wear capes.
