This promotional book on Gender Neutrality addresses the issues of gender roles. Its goal is to teach and educate people against gender identity discrimination by learning gender neutrality and the acceptance of a complete gender spectrum system. Our society is becoming much more accepting to gender nonconformity than it has been in the past. However, the core message is to just be yourself and express yourself in any way you choose. Go beyond accepting a gender spectrum, choose gender-role transcendence: the view that individual identity should be conceptualized on a personal basis rather than on the basis of masculinity, femininity, androgyny or the like. The colorful candid photos are used to display fun, high energy atmosphere as well as the mixing and manipulation of gender roles.
