The LGBTQIA+ in ELT publishing dream

Physical copies of the ELT resource book Existence, eight LGBTQIA+ inclusive resources, along with I am not a taboo bookmarks.
Existence: the physical book is here

I am so excited to be able to share with you the physical copy of Existence.

I never thought that when I started making resources that were inclusive, that I would end up with a physical product like this – but it seemed the natural progression. It’s already available in my ELT shop as a pdf, but I know that some teachers prefer to have something physical. Originally, I wanted to have it with spiral binding, but, to be honest, it was a little expensive, and I wouldn’t see much return. Not that this is the main reason for publishing the book. The main reason is that I wanted there to be a physical book out there that was inclusive of LGBTQIA+ identities, and that’s what Existence does.

I tried to represent as many different aspects of the LGBTQIA+ community as I could. Obviously, there are some identities which are yet to be represented, but it’s my intention to rectify that in future resources.

I have yet to put the physical edition in my ELT shop, as I have yet to decide whether it would be worth it – postage and packing is another matter. However, I will be bringing copies (priced at £24.99) to IATEFL in Brighton in April, along with the I am not a taboo bookmarks. Of course, I’ll be shouting about it in my workshop – here are the details:
