  1. I’m having similar issues with Lesson one. It won’t let me leave a comment, and there is no way to “complete” the lesson and move on to Lesson 2. I’ve tried using both Safari and Chrome browsers with no luck 🙁

  2. Hi! I can’t submit comments on Chapter 1, and none of the check mark boxes are showing up on the chapter as well. I have to log out and access the lessons through the pdf. But the lessons are great so far!

A transgender person is somebody who identifies as a different gender than the one they were assigned at birth. It has nothing to do with who that person loves, but how they view themselves.
