  1. Gender 101 – why gender is more complicated than just male and female
  2. Gender Transition: How do hormones work, and how do they affect the human body?
  3. A transgender man’s personal experience of transition – social, emotional, physical
  4. A transgender woman’s personal experience of transition – social, emotional, physical
  5. How do I know if I’m trans?
  6. My friend is trans. How do I support them?
