Knowledge is Power is a new on-line 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.
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 is a Big Lottery funded project.
