This is an excellent, empirically rich, and much needed contribution of concern to everyone in further and higher education. It achieves a sophisticated understanding of trans and non-binary gender inequality, accessibly conveyed, offering generous and thought-provoking practical solutions, tasking everyone with 'doing diversity'. It is much more than a practical 'how to' guide; it is a superb example of intersectional thinking applied in the educational context, with much interdisciplinary relevance. -- Professor Yvette Taylor, University of Strathclyde
