Gender Resources:

Transgender – Wikipedia 

A note abt Wikipedia: this can be a great basic info resource for larger subjects. It’s important to know how Wikis work: whoever can make edits to these pages, which means that bigots and ignorant folks *also* have the ability to make edits. Thus, it’s hella important to remain critical of the information you read on wiki sites. A great tip: visiting the References section gives you access to every citation from which information throughout the article was lifted. Often there are links to other, more reliable sources in the References section. This can be a great resource for getting started on research!
