4 Social Justice and OER

As with any marginalized group, it is essential to seek out information pertaining specifically to the identities you are interested in. That said, there is plenty of content on equity, diversity, inclusion, and social justice that is valuable when learning about trans and gender diverse inclusion. The resources on this page are of that type, as well as some that center queer identities in particular.

Note that one reason for this section is that essentially no content currently exists that is specifically centered on trans and gender diverse inclusion and OER, which means that the materials below are the most relevant content available at the time of writing (though we hope this changes in future).
