KA-POW! Knowledge is Power
Knowledge is Power is a new online resource from Gendered Intelligence for young trans and gender variant people, their families and those who support them.
Over a 12 month period, we've gathered information and experiences from young trans, gender variant and questioning people through a series of youth sessions.
We've also assembled research and writing from a diverse team of Gendered Intelligence community members. In Knowledge is Power, you'll find answers to questions like:
How can I make a self-care plan? How can I get referred to a gender identity service? What gender-neutral pronouns can I use?
As part of our Knowledge is Power project we want to provide you with lots of information, but it’s up to you to convert that into knowledge.
Knowledge is Power covers:
Trans Identities and Trans Communities
General health and physical health
Mental health and trans people
Sexual health and trans people
Accessing gender care specialists
Trans people in education
Trans people and work life
Equality and Diversity Remits
We'll be adding new pages and resources to Knowledge is Power over time. If you know any brilliant resources that we've missed out, get in touch and tell us about them.

Gendered Intelligence (GI) is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, established in 2008.
Our mission is to increase understandings of gender diversity through creative ways.
Our vision is of a world where people are no longer constrained by narrow perceptions and expectations of gender, and where diverse gender expressions are visible and valued.
We work predominantly with the trans community and those who impact on trans lives; we particularly specialise in supporting young trans people aged 11-25.
What we offer:
- A series of youth group sessions for young trans people (aged 11-25) to meet, socialise, receive information and support.
- One-on-one mentoring for trans students in education
- Support for families of young trans people online and in person
- Arts programmes and workshops themed around gender
- Training sessions for professionals in organisations, schools and youth services that work with transgender students, clients or staff.

The TransActing project explores the issue of performer training for people who identify as trans and/ or non-binary. It’s led by Dr Catherine McNamara (Director at GI and Pro-Dean (Students) and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama). Fox Fisher and Lewis Hancox of My Genderation of project partners and will be documenting the project to create a short film.
The project runs over 5 full days through the summer with sessions delivered by highly experienced performer training specialists. We also have involvement from a number television, theatre and film industry professionals. The aims of the project are to nurture the talent and commitment of emergent actors who are transgender and/ or non-binary and to facilitate a connection between those actors and, for example, casting directors.
