Breaking through the gender binary

January 15, 2017 in Uncategorized

My partner is a gender activist and as a medical doctor she is doing sterling, often quite ground-breaking, work.

Recently I have done rather interesting photographic and video assignments on gender matters, but because so many of the people I have videoed and photographed still live in fear, I cannot share it.

Therefore it was a delight to flip through the National Geographic of January 2017 – it is an entire edition aimed at trying to understand the non-binary.

One of the most important issues that they address is: What can parents do?

Do buy it, please.
