What People Are Saying...

More fun than reading a book!

Bishop (retired) Peggy Johnson

It is one of the most excellent resources I have ever come across. The website is very intuitive. The variety of video clips and the clarity of the topics far surpasses any book I have ever read. Tell people about this. We’ve got to help with the ignorance problem.

Proud to be a part of this gathering!

Rev. Louis Mitchell

So excited to share these resources!

OtherWise 101 opened up some great conversations with my family. I am sharing the OtherWise Academy with a group at my church so we can better support parents with transgender kids!
