Furthering allyship: a workshop on Trans* mental health and thriving - 13 June 2022

Please note that this event has passed.


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.

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.
