Little Jelly Bean

Yian Chen

Little Jelly Bean is an online interactive short story about a jelly bean who is not happy with their fictional pronouns and gender. Little Jelly Bean sets out to discover a world of different genders and pronouns but faces difficulty along the way. Through interactive storytelling and original illustrations, this project educates and introduces children to the idea of transgender identity with an authentic and touching experience that will help them understand then support trans people without prejudice. Another aim is to act as a support and an initial knowledge to trans children that encourages them to be who they really are.
