Love Me For Me:  Stories for Children of the Transgender Community

This project is a collaboration between Aminata Cairo, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Metro Transgender Umbrella Group (St. Louis), Leiden University College, and members of the LGBT community in the Netherlands.  Six stories have been written for children in transgender families.  The stories are being presented in reader's theater format.  The project uses the stories to improve awareness and create discussion.  The larger goal is to collect enough funding to produce the stories in book form.  The stories have been illustrated with a Meridian Grant from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
