At Project True, we know the journey to claiming your own definition of your one true self can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. Really, where do you even begin? Like most journeys, it’s a little easier when you have a map. While the route you take to get where you want to go will be your own, there are others who may have traveled a similar road. If you know where to look, there are many resources out there to help you set you up for your journey. Many of these resources can even be found for free in your local library!

From volumes of information to inspiring stories, there are many books out there that offer wisdom and knowledge to help guide you on the path to reclaiming and celebrating the incredible self that you are.
