This program explores the modern gender spectrum. Experts Dr. Eli Green, Jaymie Campbell, and Alessia Palanti define pertinent terms like cisgender, transgender, gender identity, gender expression and pronouns. Viewers learn about gender norms and stereotypes that affect all people, no matter how they identify on the gender spectrum. Students also hear from Nicole and Wayne Maines, a father-daughter pair who explain their family's unique journey with gender. A panel of young people also describes their experiences with gender and explain how viewers can become allies to someone in need.
