Gendered Intelligence: Understanding diversity in creative ways

A list of some of the ways people who attend our youth group identify: Transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, intersex, trans man, trans woman, trans boy, trans girl, genderqueer, and many more.

Youth Groups for Young Trans and Gender Variant People

Gendered Intelligence runs a range of youth groups in London, Leeds, Bristol for young trans, non-binary and questioning young people. Our groups have different age ranges which you can find out more about below. We also run a young adults peer-led support group in London for those aged 18-30.

*Young trans people aged 11 or over are welcome to attend our Under 16 group in London and our Saturday sessions in London. If you are at Primary school, or aged between 8 – 11, you can attend our special under 12s group with a parent/ carer. At the moment, our groups in Leeds and Bristol are open for young people aged 13-20. If you are a young trans person under the age of 13 or over 20 in these areas, and would like some support, please get in touch.

No matter how you identify, Gendered Intelligence's trans youth groups are open to all young trans people - whether you're brand new to identifying as trans, still questioning your identity, worrying about whether you are trans or not, or if you consider yourself to be post-transition or as having a trans history. We strive to be fully inclusive of individuals who identify as non-binary / other, as well as male or female.

There is no fee to access our youth group, and we can reimburse travel for at least £7 per person at every session if the cost of travel would prevent you from getting to the groups.

You don't need to be a member to attend the GI youth group, but young people who attend our events more than once are asked to become members of Gendered Intelligence youth. This helps us keep you up-to-date with what we're doing, and means you receive priority when applying to attend our arts projects and special trips. It also lets us build a picture of the needs and backgrounds of young people who come to Gendered Intelligence, which helps us make our service more inclusive and accessible for all.
