The link below, prepared in collaboration with the Redlands Seniors Network, leads to a booklet which seeks to promote tolerance and understanding for all people regardless of perceptions of gender difference.

It was brought to our attention, through the Redlands Seniors network, that there are few publications which attempt to explain gender differences which some in our community do not understand.

Such lack of understanding can lead to puzzlement on encountering someone who does not seem to conform to “normal” expectations with a resulting reluctance to engage socially. We have placed the booklet on our website to make it available to a wider audience
