Becoming an Ally to the
'Anna Bianchi, in her empathy and wisdom as a grandmother and a scholar, goes deep and wide, from our insides to the outside world, guiding us on the journey of building a circle of support around our gender creative children, whether they be our grandchild, our own child, or every child. With gender expansive children as our leaders, Bianchi teaches us how to achieve the acceptance, advocacy, and activism that qualify us as allies to the children. A must read.'

'My way of being in the world is values-driven, and this characterises what I do and how I do it. My values are the bedrock of my authenticity. Integrity, kindness, inclusivity and courage are some of the values I love and aspire to live daily. When we’re in touch with our values, we’re in touch with our life-force. That’s why personal inner work has always mattered to me. It’s an anchor. I recognise that it enables us make sense of our ‘stories’ and patterns of behaviour, it facilitates healing and self-acceptance, connects us more strongly to what we care for, supports healthy decision-making and deepens emotional literacy. Personal transformation also effects lasting social change. All the work I do embodies this belief and perspective; be that writing a book, leading a group, teaching or public speaking.'
