The Teaching Transgender Toolkit

Co-authored by Dr. Eli R. Green (TTI founder) with Luca Maurer (Ithaca College) the Toolkit is a collection of 30 lesson plans designed to support facilitators in implementing impactful Transgender 101+ Trainings. Published in 2015, the book was awarded Winner of the Division 44 of the American Psychological Association’s 2017 Distinguished Contribution to Education and Training award and the 2016 AASECT Book Award.

Investing in Community Grants – Coming in 2023!!

When the Toolkit was first published in 2015, Eli, Luca and their publisher Maureen chose to dedicate 10% of the revenue from sales of the Toolkit to an Investing in the Community Grant Fund to support projects and programs dedicated to transjoy, resilience, resources, and support. We are very excited to be distributing $15,000 in grant funding, and anticipate issuing 5-6 microgrants to trans projects and organizations ranging from $1-3,000 in 2023.

What People are Saying about the Toolkit

“I didn’t know this book was missing from the trans canon until I read it, and now I am so thrilled it exists. Excellent resource for teachers and workshop leaders. There’s so much here! And I’m so glad that compilations of exercises like this exist—perhaps it can help us to stop relying on trans folks to teach trans liberation.” Sinclair – via GoodReads
