Inclusive/diverse grammar/exercise books to learn English

I'm currently teaching English as an Additional language to kids and it bothers me how uniform the examples/pictures are. The most diversity that every shows up in books is people of different countries/ethnicities. That's to say, everybody is straight, able bodied, etc.

Anybody have recommendations of either books or material that don't erase everybody else?  The only thing I have found so far that at least doesn't refuse to accept diversity is duolingo, which accepts alternative pronouns for translated sentences, and that is quite little, really.

Thanks in advance,

  • Polish translation, please

    A coworker gave my dad this bottle of vodka (it has grass in it!), and I'm dying to know what the text says. Can anyone help?

  • some Arabic (?) phrases

    These are from a novel from Philip Roth. I'm sure the author doesn't speak Arabic, so presumably he had somebody to translate and transliterate…

  • グズグズ meaning

    I am having trouble understanding what "グズグズ" means in this sentence: あのグズグズだった頃の俺の心がお前となぁなぁになる事をまだ許していないのは確かだ Could someone explain?
