about Gendered Intelligence

Gendered Intelligence is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, established in 2008. Our mission is to increase understanding of gender diversity through creative ways. We work predominantly with the trans community and those who impact on trans lives; we particularly specialise in supporting young trans people[1] aged 13-25.

Over the last two years Gendered Intelligence has gone from strength to strength working with more young trans people, carrying out more activities and arts based projects, building more resources and delivering more workshops and trans awareness training. For more information about other work carried out at Gendered Intelligence, our Biennial Report offers a chance to tell you our story of what has been happening at Gendered Intelligence from 2009 – 2011. 

Gendered Intelligence’s aims are:

–       to increase the visibility and quality of young trans people’s life experiences.

–       to raise awareness of young trans people’s needs across the UK and beyond.

–       to contribute to the creation of community cohesion and strength across the whole of the trans community throughout the UK.

–       to generate discussion and debate around gender and the ways in which it presents challenges in our everyday lives.

We do this by:

–       Delivering regular activities for young trans people.

–       Delivering varied arts-based programmes and creative workshops for young trans and young LGBQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Queer) people from across the UK, including some opportunities for people over 25.

–       Providing educational sessions and workshops for young people in schools, colleges and other settings.

–       Mentoring individual young trans people.

–       Providing professional development sessions, trans awareness training and policy development consultation for statutory and other professionals, agencies and businesses.

–       Running themed trans community conferences.

–       Running events for SOFFAs (Significant Others, Friends, Family and Allies) of young trans people.

–       Offering volunteering roles that provide opportunities for personal and professional skills development

–       Publishing and distributing booklets, publications and other resources.

–       Bringing trans people and professional services together to form partnerships and run projects that will benefit the trans community.
