transgender young people speak out

This website brings together the work of transgender and gender fluid young people from around the country who want better recognition and support for those who are discovering their gender.

 

It is the result of a series of workshops in the UK regions and nations and a major event in London on 23rd November 2016. 

 

The Feel Happy with My Gender Fix focussed on five areas - school, work, health, media and the home – where trans and gender fluid young people revealed the challenges they have faced … and came up with a set of proposals to make life better for the future.

 

Follow the links below for more about the London event, to see interviews with attendees who have successful transgender lives, hear from specialists for advice on medical and psychological issues, from support groups, from a family … and from the young people themselves [click on the image to the right].

 

The work of the Feel Happy With My Gender Fix resulted in a major report for policy-makers, which is here.

 

The Feel Happy with My Gender Fix is part of the Feel Happy Fix Series run by Fixers - and supported by the Wellcome Trust - which brings together young people who are campaigning on issues that affect their well-being.
