TOP REVIEWS FROM HEALTH ACROSS THE GENDER SPECTRUM
I would love to provide this course to the faculty and staff at the school district where I work. I felt that I had an understanding of transgender but I was wrong. I truly enjoyed this course.
This course give me more information about gender, new insight on gender diversity, help me to accept the existence and respect of the choice in determining gender identity.
Very interesting course! It helped me to understand more about the gender spectrum and therefore I fell more able to help and support people across the gender spectrum. Thank you!
A great way for people to learn about the gender spectrum, its family friendly and would be a good way to show your child the gender spectrum if they don't already know about it.
