Please check out the new-and-improved Genderbread Person v2.0.  It’s a heckuvalot better and just as free to share/print! I’m leaving this up for now for those who want it, but I’m no longer endorsing it as the effective model.

The Genderbread Person is an infographic that breaks down gender identity, gender expression, biological sex, and sexual orientation into an easy to understand visual.

It’s been around in some form for many years, and this is my whack at making an inclusive, adorable, easy to understand depiction. Click below to download a printer-friendly copy for your own uses!

It’s perfect for residence hall billboards, school hallways, campus kiosks, office walls, or to be used in diversity/social justice/sensitivity training. Leave a comment and let us know how you’re using it!
