Beyond the Binary is handbook that helps guide community members, activists and youth to creating a more fluid perception of gender identity within schools. The primer begins with definitions, statistics, myth busting and basic information but also covers practical issues for activists. It includes sections about how to define a realistic timeline, as well as goals, of a campaign and get it off the ground. It even has a special section about how to organize a trans day of remembrance.

The handbook goes beyond the student body as well, with a mini guide for training staff to be trans-positive, sample letters to send to school boards and more. It also has strong voices of the experiences of gender non-conforming youth from various schools.
