Resources for Families

Below are resources Gendered Intelligence has produced for families of young trans people.

Guide for Parents and Families of Young Trans People

In conjunction with the LGBT Consortium, Gendered Intelligence produced a booklet aimed at parents and families of young trans people. This offers parents and family members some information about what it means to be trans, how it might feel as a parent or family member of a young trans person, and most importantly a bit of advice with regards to going forward from here. The booklet was updated in 2013.

Additional Resources

We have additional resource sections for trans youth, professionals and our conference reports, which are available below:

Knowledge is Power

Knowledge is Power is a project funded by Awards for All. It gathered knowledge generated through a series of youth sessions, as well as research and writing carried out by a diverse team of GI community members.

At Gendered Intelligence we think knowledge is not the same as information. Knowledge is something that comes from within. Knowledge comes when an individual has received information but has processed it in a way that offers meaning to their life.

Our Knowledge is Power project will provide you with lots of information but it’s up to you to convert that into knowledge.

If you do this we think that you will be empowered to make decisions that will enrich your life.

Alongside the information on our website we encourage you to look on other websites, visit libraries, talk to people, watch films, TV programmes and videos so that you can form your own views. We have linked to lots of other sites too and offered signposts where we can.

Converting information into knowledge is about learning about the world around us and about who we are. It’s also about changing ourselves and the world for the better! Sharing our own knowledge with others is about ensuring that knowledge circulates and benefits the whole of society.
