A House for Everyone – Jo Hirst


On this episode we are joined by Jo Hirst, author of Australia’s first picture book for transgender children, The Gender Fairy, to discuss the release of their second picture book, A House for Everyone, about gender diversity and gender expression.

“Jackson is a boy who wears a dress. Ivy is a girl who likes her hair cut very short. Alex does not feel like just a boy or just a girl.
They are all the same. They are all different. They are all friends .

A House for Everyone is a simple, engaging story that challenges gender stereotypes and shows children it’s ok to be yourself. It’s a space for all children to explore and understand the full spectrum of gender diversity, and will show children the many ways they can express their gender in a truly positive light.
