PRONOUNS MATTER

A few years back, I created a zine for students to educate their professors on trans inclusivity.  It is available as a free, open-source style .pdf that anyone can download, change, and re-distribute.  Feedback is always welcome! Click here to download the zine (print double sided and fold down the middle).
