We were pleased to be asked by Suffolk County Council – Communities team to provide some training and information to youth workers and other professionals working with young people in the Suffolk Coastal area of Ipswich regarding Trans* and Gender Diverse young people.
The training was co-produced by young Trans* people, who also helped facilitate the session.
Among the areas covers were
what is gender?,
gender identity and assigned gender,
gender and sexuality
what is gender diversity
Aiden and Jack, the young people helping to facilitate then shared their experiences of growing up Trans* in Suffolk.
All feedback was positive with people valuing the balance between information and the lived life experiences of the young people – who were promised for their openers and willingness to share their Trans* journey.
