     Calling all providers serving LGBTQ youth! The NYC Administration for Children's Services recently published their handbook of policy, best practices, and guidance for serving trans and gender non-conforming kids in the child welfare, detention and juvenile justice systems. This is an important, comprehensive resource for anyone serving trans or gender non-conforming folks, and good reading for anyone interested in the intersection of public policy and issues of gender and sexuality. 

The 62-page, beautifully-illustrated handbook is available for free download on NYC's official website.
