Gender Spectrum Story Time: The Boy & The Bindi

Jun 07, 2017

We’re excited to share our third Gender Spectrum Story Time, featuring a book reading and interview with Vivek Shraya, author of The Boy & the Bindi. This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of a boy who wants to wear a bindi, a decoration on the forehead, that is traditionally worn by South Asian women. The boy’s mom gives him a bindi and helps him feel “safe and true.”
