We would like to invite you to join us to explore how we can improve healthcare provided support for Trans* young people.
Our workshop, facilitated by a team of Trans* researchers will be held on Monday 13th June 6:45 – 8:30pm. During the event, the team will share initial findings of our participatory action research that explored the challenges young Trans* people face in accessing healthcare and the process’ impact on their mental health. This will be followed by a Q & A and an interactive workshop and a radical board game session, where you will have the opportunity to engage with interactive artwork and discuss our recommendations on how your practice, health care setting or institution can be made more accessible for Trans* people to ensure their thriving.
Please note - while this workshop builds on discussion and dialogue, this event is not a space for ‘debate’ on the validity of Trans* experience or identity.
There are only 30 spaces available, so if you book a ticket but cannot attend, please do cancel your ticket as far in advance as possible.
We especially welcome attendance from healthcare professionals working at GP practices and medical students, as well as those who work in the field of Trans* well-being in academia or in our community.

The Research Team
Trans* is an umbrella term that refers to a wide range of identities within the gender identity spectrum that do not conform to the cisnormative and/or binary model of gender. Adding the asterisk is a way to liberate ourselves from expectations and the restrictions placed on our lives by rigid societal gender norms. It symbolises how a person’s gender can morph and change as we grow in our humanity.
