Here is the latest version of our Resource Directory and Welcome Booklet (31.03.2013). There are hard copies at our events (1st-3rd Wednesday Evening’s each month).
Unfortunately it took a while to get these books printed and there are some parts that will soon need to be updated, e.g. terminology is already out dated in the book but updated on our website… if you have any feedback email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or tell the committee anonymously via http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GHTFWFLand when the book is updated all the feedback will be used at once.
Nevertheless, it’s a step forward so if you are looking for some sort of assistance YGender doesn’t provide or want to know more about how YGender is run, it says it in the book :)
