Transgender Basics Video
Transgender Basics is a 20 minute educational film on the concepts of gender and transgender people.
Two providers from the Gender Identity Project discuss basic concepts of gender - sex, identity and gender roles - as three transgender community members share their personal experiences of being trans and genderqueer.
The film targets service providers and others working with the LGBT community, but it also provides a fascinating glimpse into gender and identity for the general public.
