The EdJAM Children's Series is a collection of illustrated books for children designed by undergraduate students and illustrators to highlight historical and contemporary narratives that are missing from textbooks in Pakistan.
The story is about a teenager, Ahmed/Amal and their questioning of gender and sexuality. While located in the context of Pakistan, the story motivates readers to think about socially constructed categories of sex and gender, and the possibility of creating space for different genders and sexualities.
