Jazz and Friends Event Celebrates Transgender/Non-Binary Youth

Educators and families gathered at Gladwyne Elementary School on May 7, 2019, for a Jazz and Friends Book Reading and Discussion.

Participants read and discussed three books that feature non-binary and transgender youth. I Am Jazz is the story of a young transgender girl, based on the real-life experiences of Jazz Jennings. Julian is a Mermaid celebrates individuality and the power of being seen and affirmed. And They She He Me: Free to Be! is an exploration of pronouns and gender fluidity.

The event was supported by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Welcoming Schools and the National Education Association.

Children's Book World provided copies of the books for sale and participants enjoyed refreshments as part of the evening.
