Resources

Gegi SchoolBag

Gegi.ca wants everyone in Ontario schools to be able to do gender in their own way at school, and not face discrimination or harassment. We have made lots of resources to help make this possible, with more to come!

In addition to the mostly print and online resources on this page, if you follow our Ontario school board-specific pathways for students or staff, you’ll find locate in-person and local resources in your board’s geographical area.

Tip sheets

If you are a student wondering about playing sports, going on an overnight field trip, or accessing washrooms or changing rooms, our tip sheets set out how schools can work to prevent gender expression and/or gender identity discrimination (learn more about these terms). You can read these when you are getting ready to meet with school staff, or you can also just print them out and provide them to school staff, as they have been written with that audience in mind. We also made a tip sheet for teachers on creating a classroom that welcomes and sustains gender diversity.

Research one-pagers

The team behind gegi.ca is researching how Ontario school boards are interpreting gender expression and gender identity human rights protections. If you’d like to learn more about our research, we’ve made some one-page summaries of our articles.

The No Big Deal Campaign

The No Big Deal Campaign or NBD was started by www.gegi.ca co-founder Dr. Lee Airton in 2016. NBD offers tools for people to show their support for transgender and/or nonbinary people and our pronouns in everyday life. Sharing, posting or printing the NBD badge or one of our posters is an easy way to let transgender and/or nonbinary know that you are someone who is on board to use our pronouns without making it into a big deal. NBD also has vivid posters and postcards that you can print and display, all for free and unlimited use.
