Community Saturdays in London
On the last Saturday of the month we hold sessions for young people and their parents/carers in London. There are a few exceptions to this schedule – Pride in London, Trans Pride in Brighton, August as our summer picnic often falls on a different date, and our End of Year Showcase in December.
We run three groups on Community Saturday. They are:
- A new session for 8-11 year olds (7 year olds can attend with a parent present)
- A session for young trans people and their siblings aged 11-24
- A session for parents/ carers & family members in a building across the courtyard from the youth group
Who can come to our Saturday Sessions?
No matter how you identify, Gendered Intelligence's trans youth groups are open to all young trans people between 8 - 24 years (if you have a trans child who is under 8, please contact us for more information and support) - whether you're brand new to identifying as trans, or gender variant, still questioning your identity, 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, as well as male or female.
You do not have to be accompanied by a parent or carer, however if you are under 18, a youth worker will need to take the contact details of a next of kin in case of emergencies. There is no need to register in advance - just turn up on the day.
Siblings of young trans people who are between 8 - 24 are also welcome to these sessions.
Parents/carers of young trans, gender variant and questioning young people are welcome to come along to Saturday sessions. You do not have to be accompanied by a young person to attend.
If you would like to return to the group after your first session, we would ask you to become a parent/carer member

Youth events in July
July is a jam-packed month of Pride events!
Pride in London, Saturday 7 July 2018
On Saturday, 7th of July, Gendered Intelligence will be marching through London as part of this year's Pride in London parade.
The parade route starts at Portland Place and ends at Whitehall Place.
This year, everyone marching in the parade has to wear a wristband. Gendered Intelligence has 160 wristbands - young people, parents/carers and volunteers are welcome to march with us.
Due to the limited number of wristbands available, we will be giving out wristbands on a first-come, first-served basis, though young people will be prioritised.
Please book your place via Eventbrite. You will find more information on the booking page.
