YOU can help trans people get better therapy and more allies

Disclaimer: I'm not sure whether you all would consider this relevant, so I understand if you (the mods, namely) delete it. I do think it's important, however. Thanks!

Okay, my father is the executive director of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). He's been asked to select several books (I'm unsure of the exact number) from the following list to be included in the bookstore at AASECT's annual conference. Which three books, out of this list, would you all most want therapists, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, clergy, educators, etc to read? Which ones would you absolutely not want them to read? Are there any books you would recommend that have been left out?

Any and all help would be highly appreciated. We have the chance to actually influence what books our therapists and other professionals who interact with us and educate about us read on transgender. I don't think I can overstate the importance of that.
