As acceptance for the LGBT community grows, our society is coming to understand that many gender identities are not binary. Young adulthood is a critical time for exploring and coming to terms with gender identity. Readers learn about non-binary identities and the issues the community still faces despite the progress that has been made in the 21st century. Fact boxes highlight transgender and non-binary role models in the media, and contact information for LGBT organizations is provided. This volume is an important resource for young adults of all genders and their allied friends and family.
