    Below is a list of threads in the Gender Identity and Expression section that have been deemed helpful or important. Because there are so many, we've put links to them together in one thread, rather than having a bunch of stickies at the top of this section. We will post in this thread every time a thread is added to the list, so you don't need to constantly check for updates; just check the date of the most recent post in this thread. Be sure to check the stickies in other sections of the forum for more useful advice and information.

    If you want to suggest any threads that could be added, please post in Ask The Staff pointing us to the thread you found useful.
