PATHSA Chairperson, Chris McLachlan, was quoted in the Sunday Times on 27 November 2022, and interviewed on Newzroom Africa, regarding a manual for preschool teachers that recommends making children's rhymes and songs gender neutral. 

Here is the link to the recording:

Chris said that creating an inclusive environment in which children have space simply to play, experiment and be themselves, will have a positive impact on children's mental health. "The school needs to be a safe space for all and this manual provides practical ways to accomplish that." 


PATHSA is an interdisciplinary health professional organisation working to promote the health, wellbeing and self-actualisation of trans and gender diverse people.
