COLOURS - Youth group and events for trans, gender variant and questioning young people of colour
Gendered Intelligence has relaunched its youth group for trans, gender variant and questioning young people of colour aged 13-25 as Colours.
From 17 March 2017, we’ll be running four three-hour events across the year.
Each session will be themed and might include screenings, panels, speakers and performances to create a celebratory and empowering space.
The group is still dedicated to trans young people of colour only. All workers and visitors will be trans or gender variant people of colour.
We understand trans and non-binary people of colour can experience additional barriers and stigma. Colours is designed as a safe space for young people of colour, with disabilities, with religious beliefs who are trans men, trans women, gender non-conforming or non-binary.
We explicitly welcome and invite mixed-heritage people. It's okay if you don't feel black enough, or Asian enough, we welcome all young people of colour who are unsure or questioning their gender, or just looking to meet like-minded people.
GI's dedicated group for young trans people of colour, COLOURS is bringing you a mini music festival - bringing in trans POC artists and singers to talk about their experience in music.
On Tuesday 12th September we're having a mini music festival! Everyone should bring in an instrument or a piece of music they love including volunteers and workers. We've invited Screaming Toenail and Maricumbia DJs to share experiences of being TPOC in music.
