Our Mission

Gender Nation empowers and validates children through access to uplifting, inclusive stories that demonstrate the full spectrum of sexuality and gender identity.

Our Story

In the last 10 years, an explosion of new books represent the vast gender and sexuality spectrum. The demand for these books illustrates just how natural it is to identify along the spectrum. Access to these uplifting, inclusive, and age appropriate books is what Gender Nation is all about.

LGBTQ+ kids are five times more likely to attempt suicide. Five. The messaging they’re given in the world around them doesn’t resonate with who they are, and evidence shows that if they receive any support to counter that – either at school or home – their risk of suicide decreases substantially. School libraries can become sanctuaries, when filled with messages of support and inclusivity. That’s why we believe Gender Nation’s mission to fill those libraries with books LGBTQ+ kids can identify with is life saving work.
